Description

This handmade, wooden duck is expertly carved in wood and meticulously painted with an amazing amount of detail and care. It is unsigned. It measures approximately 1 1/4"W x 1 3/4"D x 1 3/4"H. It is mounted on a lightweight exotic wood piece that looks a bit like driftwood. There is a glob of glue showing between the animal and its mount which is visible in the photos. It is a mottled duck or mottled mallard which is found in the southeastern US and Mexico. It would be a beautiful addition to a bird collection. No damage or repairs. Materials: wood and enamel paint. Circa 1980. Excellent condition.

This listing is for the bird only. The photo props are not included. Thanks!

Mottled ducks are often mistaken for a mallard ducks and teal ducks. It more closely resembles (pretty exactly) a mottled duck which is also known as a mottled mallard, Florida mottled duck or Florida mallard.
It is a medium-sized waterfowl. The males of this species are called mottled drakes, and the females mottled hens.

Family Ducks and Geese

Habitat Marshes. Open marshy country, wet prairies, rice fields. Favors treeless country, wide horizons. In coastal areas, usually found in fresh or brackish ponds adjacent to coast rather than in salt marsh.

A close relative of the Mallard, the Mottled Duck is the only dabbling duck specialized for nesting in southern marshes, far to the south of most of its relatives. Unlike most waterfowl, Mottled Ducks are almost never seen in large flocks, generally traveling in pairs or small groups. Young ducklings frequently dive underwater to feed; adults seldom do.

They lay 8-12 eggs, sometimes 5-13. Whitish to pale olive. Generally fewer eggs in later clutches. Incubation is by female only, 24-28 days. Young: leave nest shortly after hatching; female leads them to feeding sites, and young feed themselves. Young can make short flights to escape danger at about 50 days; capable of sustained flight at 60-70 days.

The young leave nest shortly after hatching; female leads them to feeding sites, and young feed themselves. Young can make short flights to escape danger at about 50 days; capable of sustained flight at 60-70 days.

Oomnivorous diet includes seeds of aquatic plants and grasses, insects, snails, occasionally small fish. Young ducklings feed almost entirely on insects and other invertebrates.

Pairs usually formed in fall, with breeding activity beginning in January. Pairs may prospect for nest sites together, flying low over marsh. Nest site is in dense growth in marsh or prairie, sometimes on canal bank or in agricultural field, usually within 600' of water. Where supported in dense clumps of grass, nest may be several inches above ground. Nest is shallow bowl of grasses, reeds, lined with down and breast feathers.

No worries will lead to No regrets if something speaks to you here, give it renewed life and add to its story.

Seriously tho, wonderful seller transaction left me with an uplifted feeling. Very cool when seller interaction displays interest and value to you as a buyer, great representation of Etsy visionaries!
