Male Mallard Squabble

I had an idea something was going to happen as I watched a female and vocalizing male Mallard close in on another pair in a small pond.

Quack, quack, and splash …

I have no idea which duck was which at this point. I don’t know where the female Merganser appeared from, either, but she quickly retreated.
