Default Mallard hybrid ?

This guy came into the spread today. I was thinking that is was Mallard crossed with a tame duck? But I have a Friend that saw the photos from an email & thought it may be full Mallard with a leucistic condition. After researching leucism I think it could be.

Either way it is kinda cool so I think I will be taking it to Tex to mount up for me. What kind of poses do you guys think will look good?

There is not a single thing about that bird that looks luecistic. Sure you did research on the subject?

I absolutely did the research!!! I did not say it was or was not luecistic! I had never heard of the condition until a friend told me about it. I did a google search on a luecistic Mallard & several photos came up with several looking almost identical. That is why I said that I think it MAYBE luecistic.

That is a "Bibbed Domestic Mallard." It's what happens when a wild mallard breeds usually with a Pekin duck. Neat birds. Not spotted too often in the wild. If it was flying and you shot it at a refuge or a flock of ducks, then I'd say that's pretty neat. If you ground pounded it because it wouldn't fly, then it's not that cool haha.

There you go. This one was in Colorado. The white on it is from the Pekin duck. They are never the same or symetrical.

The smile on your face says it all. The great thing about mounted birds is that they become great conversation pieces and hold great memories afield. If you feel so inclined put it on the wall. You asked about a pose. I'd say sitting or standing! Something that displays the oddity of the green and white head.

Occasionally we see a park duck flying in amongst a flock of mallards, We ALWAYS try and shoot the park duck because it is really cool and a great conversation piece. Congrats on the weird duck!
