American Black Duck Confirmation Needed

Recommended Posts

These look like Mallards to me. There's very little contrast between the heads and bodies, and the flank feathers of the bird on the right show obvious internal pale markings. You won't see males in their typical plumage right now, since they're in eclipse plumage.

Thank you.  There were pale markings on the birds, most noticeable when they took flight.

Glad to have this forum back up and running.  Missed this helpful community with members

as responsive and informative as you.  Patricia
