We get a wide range of ducks in decent years. Mallards and woodies are the most prevalent. You will see plenty of different divers if you get out on bigger water. Teal, gadwall, the occasional pintail, black ducks, shovelers....

Mallards, Geese, Wigeon along with Wood ducks. I had some canvasback come in last year but I only saw them once. Coots are also pretty common.
