What kind of duck is this?
I am trying to figure out what kind of duck this is. Someone dropped him off at our pond. He was their pet. I have looked in books and online but I can’t find a duck like this.
He very large in comparison to the to the mallards.
He is mostly black, although some of his feathers appear with a tint of green in bright sunlight.
He has white on his wing tips and some white spots his chest.
His bill is grey.
His legs are mostly orange but the webs of his feet are black.
He makes the same, but louder, noise as of a male Mallard.
Any clues? I think he might be a hybrid of mallard and something else. Maybe a mallard/muscovy?
