Can Anyone Identify This Duck? - Photographs

© All Rights Reserved 

© All Rights Reserved
I took these photographs in Fairfield, CT on February 5, 2013. This duck with the green head, pale yellow bill with a black tip and black center stripe, white and black mottled chest, brown body, brown wings with a trace of blue wing feathers, curled tail feathers, and brown legs was among a group of Mallard ducks. He seemed to be a part of the group, but his coloring is clearly different. I looked through pictures of North American ducks but I couldn't find him.

Can anyone identify this duck? If yes, please leave a comment, or send me an email. Thanks!

Sometimes ducks mate with those not exactly like themselves and you can get a strange duck, so to speak. If the Mallard mates with a barnyard duck you can get these sort of characteristics. We've seen an albino mallard - that was interesting too.
