a pair of mottled ducks, potentially hybrids, in the stream near the entrance, far from the other ducks. Not a tinge of green on the male despite it being breeding season. The female also has too yellow of a bill. Feathers had the distict buffy painted color that mottled ducks have.
Seminole Lake Park
@Seminole Lake Park, A pair that very well exhibited the differences between mottled ducks and mallards. The male has a black line on the top of its head with no visible green. The feathers have a unique painted appearance that continues to the chest rather than starting at the wing.
two males and one female actually, they all seem to stay together
He now has a mate. No white border on speculum feathers, unlike a mallard
He has returned to the pond, active in the evening
New resident at the pond, similar to an eclipse mallard but no green and different coloring
