How smart are mallard ducks?
I have raised mallard ducks for many years now and I have observed them of having considerable intelligence. They can identify and return to familiar geographical areas, respond to voice commands, and have many ways of communicating with each other. If you look at a mallard duck's head, its skull is larger than that of most birds, so you can assume that it has more space for a brain. This is the same with most waterfowl I believe.

Asked in Songbirds
Can birds of different species have babies?
Only if they are closely related geneticly. Two examples of hybridization among birds in the wild are:The blue wing warbler and the golden winged warbler sometimes breed where their ranges overlap.The results are called Brewster's warblers or Lawrence's warbler.Also,another common hybridization occurs with the mallard and black ducks.This particular hybridization is troubling,as the black duck is decling in many areas,and this crossing with the mallard could only speed the process.
