American Black Duck x Mallard (hybrid)

Anas rubripes x Anas platyrhynchos


About 20 mallards and this blond colored duck (a mallard?) following what I thought was a male mallard; but the male's colorings seem off. ...2/10/2017 update: Thanks to Jellis, I believe the blond duck and the male in front of it, are both hybrids.
