You can always message Liam on fb and ask him!

It's the first I've seen like this so I wasn't sure. I've updated the ID. Thank you! :)

Well I don't know hybrids well, and this isn't a domestic cross I'm familiar with, but domestics can look like almost anything. I'd bet it's a domestic, but not positive of that

Just wasn't sure what to call it :) I was curious what the mix is.

Just curious, why do you say hybrid Mallard versus the much more common domesticated Mallard?
