Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos): Common throughout the region year-round, with both year-round residents and migrants or wintering birds present seasonally.

Found on lakes, rivers, and in estuaries or along ocean shorelines (though stays with open water in the winter).

  • Note on feral birds? Present in Sitka, but not sure about elsewhere - do they make up the bulk of the summer birds?
