What is a Dabbling Duck?
Dabbling Ducks, or Dabblers, are ducks that tip up – head down bottom up – in order to feed, foraging through shallow water and mud in search of plants and insects.
Dabbling Ducks very rarely dive below the water.
The most common Dabbling Ducks are the Mallards, Northern Pintails, American Wigeons and Teals.
