    Unknown Duck

    An ID on this duck please.

    I saw it on our dam the other day hanging about with the Pacific Blacks.

    Was thinking female Mallard or cross Pacific Black/Mallard Duck, but that doesn't really work.
    Got to be a feral something and 10 minutes later, playing with the search engine of my choice, I come up with a maybe Welsh Harlequin Duck.
    No link, time for you to play with the search engine of your choice.

    Thanks Mark, I think you hit that one on the head. It definitely looks like a Welsh Harlequin.
    Exotic import running free with the natives. Interesting about your remark of a Pacific Black/ Mallard cross. I wonder if it is possible as Pacifics and Mallards are related.

    --It sounds cruel, but I suppose somebody's gotta ID ducks. (Quick, duck!! - Or "quack" will do.)

    Anyway, I was just wondering why you didn't post in the CC forums, as Feathers wanted you to
    CC, Image editing OK.

    It's well known that it happens.
    I'll post these examples from a while ago that shows I need to revisit PP.
