This is a fantastic example of cross-breeding. This is a 1/2 pintail 1/2 mallard, by all appearances :laugh: And seeing as he was on land with the mallards...one female in particular - I am hoping we will see some 1/4 pintail ducklings this spring

Some "Manky" Mallards aren't quite as pretty as others :tongue: I believe this is a Mallard/ Northern Shoveler cross, although it could have some other breeds in there as well

These Wigeons are my new favorite ducks. They are finally starting to hand feed and have great personalities. Their feathers are much softer and finer than the Mallards.

A fellow birder/photographer suggested I get to eye level when taking photos of birds....good advice, except I think I may have tried it on the wrong bird :chin:
