Intersex Mallard?

Recommended Posts

Southern Ontario yesterday.

Just wondering if this is a female starting the change to male plumage. The bill is still bi-coloured but looking more yellow than normal (and slightly deformed), some green on the head appearing and the body plumage looking more male. I think it is too late for an immature male to be moulting into adult plumage.
