  • Types of Ducks

    When most people think of ducks, they imagine a mallard or something similar, something they’ve seen. Some people know, though, that there are actually many different types of ducks. Though they all belong to the Anatidae family, the family of ducks has such diversity that you can group them into even smaller divisions by their common characteristics.
