This duck looks to be mallard but maybe mixed?
Ponds, creeks, marshy wet lands
Yep, a Crested Duck (Anas domesticus)
Hi Kat! I'm not sure about the exact breed/mix for this duck but these crests are due to a mutation found in ducks of mallard descent:http://www.domestic-waterfowl.co.uk/cres...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crested_Duc...)
