Can't help much with the identifications as we don't get much of anything like these up here that I've seen, either in real life or in books. Could they be some mongrel cross of sorts? In any event, they are great shots, a touch dark on my screen, and really interesting looking waterfowl. Thanks for sharing them, Suzan.

Hi Norm

I've seen hybrid Mallards that look like the top duck, but never like the bottom...

It's too early for them to be molting, which always makes identification a struggle.

The reason I asked "where" is because if you live on either coast and rarely on the Great Lakes, we sometimes get European or Asian visitors ...

The top too "look" like hybrid Mallards, not that I'm betting on this...

Sorry DBB with a patch over one eye reading is difficult (that's my story and I'm sticking to it)

Taken on the central coast of California.

I would suggest you invest some serious money in European and Asian bird books...:lol:

It just might be that them there guys are rare in this country - yes indeed, they might be immigrants....

Birders AND immigration might very well be interested. I don't see any green card?
