What duck?


Recommended Posts

I saw this one yesterday at a local lake in Southern California. I can’t find a match in my books either domestic, exotic, or regular water fowl. He was with a domestic mallard and some Canadian geese. 
 

thank you for the help.

Domestic Mallards

Yes, and it's "Canada Goose," not "Canadian Goose." I've no idea why the difference in construction for species such as Canada Goose and Canada Warbler, when it's American Crow and European Starling and Eurasian Bullfinch and Australian Shelduck.

It's for the same reason as Nashville and Tennessee Warblers, Baltimore Oriole, and Florida Scrub-Jay.

Just don't ask me what that reason is.
