Mallard Duck on display at the wetlands. This small area has been preserved by the park district in East Peoria. It is fed by a natural spring and has open water even in sub-freezing weather. There were several dozen mallards feeding in the beaver pond. I took this photo from the boardwalk that runs through the wetland. J G Ward
