The bill of a female American Black Duck is yellow with a black tip. My best guess it is a female Mallard. You know it could be a hybrid with an American Black Duck, but since the females are so similar you just can't really tell. Mysteries.

I think it is a Mallard, though it could also be a black duck. Would be easier to ID with a clear view of the Speculum
