You may have switched up the aspect ration and wing loading in the third category of birds that fly for a long time by accident, the chart and common sense indicate they have a low to medium wing loading and a medium to high aspect ratio. You wrote that they have a low to medium aspect ration and a medium to high wing loading.


I'm also not so sure about mallards having a hard time taking off, they can manage a vertical takeoff in areas where they're fed by humans less frequently. It's actually quite impressive.
Though, that's probably more a matter of having to throw them in somewhere.
