Mallards really are fascinating ducks.  The male mallard seen here is called a drake.  The males have more vibrant colors with a glossy green head.  The females have a mottled brown appearance.

They also differ in the sounds they make.  The drake make a distinctive "quacking sound"; females have a quieter and a more subtle "quack".  The male also has the ability to make a variety of sounds.
