Additional Information

The mallard is found in its wild form all over Texas during the winter months.  It is known as a dabbler, puddle, pond, or river duck that prefers fresh water; although, a few appear on brackish or salt bays and estuaries.

The femaile utters a loud resounding "quack"; the male a low, reedy "kwek-kwek-kwek-kwek."

The mallard is a strong flier and can easily reach speeds of 60 miles an hour.  When taking off from water, it beats its wings against the water and springs directly into the air.  It can swerve abruptly, it can dodge, it can actually fly backwards and even upside down to elude danger.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.


This is a part of the Texas Wildlife Art Prints Collection.


Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
