Thank you for the welcome! However, I have a confession to make - I am a returnee - but it's been so long since I've posted I'd forgotten my user name!

Thanks also for your comment - appreciated. I took a quick walk through a local park yesterday and noticed this duck because of the blue head feathers. I suspect it's a Mallard whose parents roamed a bit!

I too think so, because I have mostly seen only green ones. Anyway, always nice to see a different one, isn't it?

As you say Raghu, “it’s nice to be different”! The Mallards do, of course, have the green, iridescent feathers on the head. I took a quick stroll through a local park and, as I approached an area where the ducks congregate I noticed a duck with what appeared to be blue head feathers. So the camera was soon in action!Attached is the original photo.
