Pekin Duck (Long Island Duck)

Anas platyrhynchos domestica

Description:

Either that or a hybrid crested duck-something else where the crest just didn't happen. But I'd assume pekin is more likely. This was, unfortunately, the closest I could get. Both ducks took off when I took a few more steps.

Habitat:

Hermann Park.

Notes:

Some American coots there in the background.
