Mottled Duck Picture Gallery

The Mottled Duck is about twenty-two inches long and various shades of brown all over. A yellow bill and orange legs and feet complement the bird's basic color scheme. It eats a variety of aquatic foods including grass, seeds and insects. The adult mottled duck is equally at home in freshwater and saltwater marsh areas.

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel single lens reflex (dSLR) camera was employed for most of the bird photos below. It was equipped with a  Sigma zoom lens 200-500 mm, sometimes with a 1.4 tele-extender. All photos on the page are downsized and compressed for loading speed. The high resolution 6.3 megapixel images are archived offline.
