This one might be a bit boring - is this a domestic/mallard hybrid, or something along those lines? It was noticeably larger/more aggressive than the surrounding mallards (pictured), with a darker/less shiny plumage, a paler bill, and a speckled breast. In a small man-made pond in San Francisco in May. Thank you!

(You'll also notice a large crazy-looking Muscovy Duck which I assume is also domestic.)

Yes, the larger duck (besides the domestic Muscovy) is a domestic breed of Mallard.
