There may well be far more Northern Mallard or Domestic Mallard or
Mallard hybrid habitat in Australian than is currently occupied by
Mallards. At any rate we often saw flights of (domestic?) Mallards
flying along the seaward side of the coastline on the Coromandel
Peninsula in the North Island of NZ. The small flock in the image did
not feed but appeared to be riding out either/or the high tide and an ex
Cyclone Debbie deluge among the mangroves. Note the plumage variations
among the drakes.
