  1. So I spotted these ducks back in August in Hermon, NY (It's basically in the Adirondacks) St. Lawrence County. I identified them as domestic/mallard hybrid but I was wondering what others thought. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. I am located at Pato Blanco Lakes RV Park in Benson, AZ Date of all pictures is 02/09/2020 There are 3 ponds here with several different species of water fowl but I have 3 that I can't positively identify. They may be domestic water fowl but I'm not completely sure. Thanks for any and all responses. Very much appreciated. I think this is the White-fronted Goose. It rules the pond and is often seen breaking up mating of other water fowl. They also like to chase humans. I think this is most likely a domestic male duck but not sure of his species. He is mating with the next female duck that interestingly has a black bill while this male has the yellow bill. Both bills however seem to be the same shape. This is the female that the above male was mating to while I was taking pictures.
  3. I saw this pair of ducks on the lower Brandywine, Wilmington, Delaware. Tried my usual identification apps with no luck. Iโ€™m beginning to wonder if this duck is North American at all. The blue feet should be an easy field mark, but donโ€™t help me.
  4. I saw this duck in flight today in Maricopa County, Arizona over a lake. Is it a scaup?...may be greater. Any help is appreciated.
  5. Is this a Mallard without the neck ring or a different species/variation? Thanks for any assistance.
  6. Hello, Trying to identify another duck, my bird id app can't identify it. Sorry for the image quality, it was exported from a timeline in Final Cut Pro X. Date: 11/08/2019 Where: Atascadero, CA - running right past me. Thanks again for the help.
  7. Hello again, Need help again identifying another duck. I think it's an immature male/female Ruddy Duck. Merlin ID also identified this as a Ruddy Duck. Location: Atascadero, CA Where: Swimming in a lake When: November 8th, 2019 Thanks for your help again.
  8. Hi. In my search to identify this duck - see photo- I found this forum. ๐Ÿ˜Š We saw only two of these ducks in a salt water marsh in Longue Rive, Quebec last week. They seemed fairly big for ducks and my birding friend thought it was from the geese family. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Location: Batterson Park Pond, Farmington, CT Date: 24-AUG-19 Can someone please help Id this duck?
  10. Both photos taken this July in eastern Scotland in a wooded area with a pond. 1. What bird? https://i.imgur.com/K7IX8WK.jpg 2. Greater or Lesser Scaup https://i.imgur.com/O3IU1vZ.jpg
  11. 2/16/2019 near Universal Studios Orlando. I'm leaning toward male Mallard X Mottled and female pure Mottled.
  12. Can anyone tell me what species of duck this fellow is please? I've never seen one like it before. In southern Alberta 22km south east of Cardston. Photo taken Oct 6/18. He was with a whole lot of American Coots.
  13. hi, I saw this bird today in Toronto, Ontario. is it a mallard (juvenile?) or wigeon (why not white forehead?). thx
  14. This duck appeared swimming in a fresh-water canal behind my home in Boca Raton, FL. It does not look like the usual ducks that I see here (Muscovies and FL mottled ducks and an occasional mallard in eclipse mode). It was seen on Oct 30, 2018.
  15. Hello, I saw this bird in wetlands in Spain. It was in a wild bird reserve, with apparently a lot of northern shovelers, common teals, common pochards, red-crested pochards and mallard ducks (according to their info boards). I suppose it is one of those. Unfortunately we can't see the colours properly and it was taken from a distance with the sun in my eyes so I couldn't tell. It looked very much like a female mallard - and might be one - but to me the bill looks longer than a mallard's. Is it a teal? Thank you!
  16. When I saw the duck in the attached photo it was standing so that it's breast was out of the water. The breast looked odd and different to me, very speckled, so I snapped a couple of pics. Unfortunately I've deleted everything except this one photo and now looking at it this duck does not seem to be a Mallard like I originally thought. Sorry - photo is a huge crop. The bill is lighter at the base and gets darker towards the end and the striping on the head looks "different" too. I can't find many pictures of them, but from what I can find I think this could possibly be a male eclipse Garganey. Seen in Orange County, California on 9/27.
