    i don't believe it is a mallardxblack duck.any mallard/black i have ever shot have lokked almost exactly like a black duck except for the white on the speculum and that is what distinguishes them as a cross not a pure black.

    Perhaps the mallard x black crosses you have shot Bucky were not mature drakes? I believe that is what this is. I have shot several like this with the partial green heads.

    Ya ... the one in the original pic is a first generation (50/50) hybrid ... it will have 50% mallard genetics so they generally have some green in the head which can vary in amount. The ones that look like blacks with some white above the speculum are likely "black dominated black/mallard hybrids" ... meaning they were crossed a few generations back ... like the duck in the original post would be their grandfather or great or great great grandfather ect. The mallard and black are so close genetically that their offspring are fertile and carry on the genes ... most crosses between less similar ducks are sterile.
