Duck

Recommended Posts

While wondering about Dalhousie today I saw a large group of ducks being fed by an elderly couple and one duck ? stood out among the rest of the mallards . It is larger with dark plumage  with white flecks on the breast . It is a cross with something , possibly a black duck which I haven't seen in years .

Any duck hunters know what this thing is ???

It definitely has a Mallard head and definitely mixed with a black but what is throwing me off is the white i have mounted many mallard /black mix . The only thing i can say is ether a mallard has crossed with maybe a farm duck if so it would probably be what they call CALL DUCK.BUT by the looks of this bird it looks like a black was the one that did the mix as he has more black duck in him than mallard Very nice looking bird for sure .

That sound very reasonable Mike ....The white is a mystery , maybe a farm duck had a say in it or some seagull picked got friendly....

 

That duck is much larger than the mallards there which makes me think his ma visited a farm one day ....
