Mallards are abundant and have a wide distribution across the continent and are quite a common duck. Lucky for us, concentrations of these waterfowl primarily occur in the Mississippi Flyway both on the breeding and wintering grounds so they fly through Missouri on their way to and from twice a year.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources. We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature. Read more about our mission.
