I took this picture yesterday in Estero Llano Grande in South Texas. I first I thought there were mottled ducks but I can't see the black spot at the gape and there is some white in the speculum. Waiting for your responses

Thanks in advance

These look far too dark for Mexy Duck, and the face of the male is extensively buffy, despite the lack of a gape patch. Well up the RGV, Mexican x Mottleds are quite frequent. Perhaps some Mexy genes have made it downriver.

That was my impression too- they are almost as dark as black duck. Definitely not a standard Mexican by any means.
