Interesting! While your male Mallard looks just like ours, the female looks completely different.

The close-ups are stunning. Nice shots of a variation of this boid (that's Brooklynese)...

Never saw this Coot either.:lol:

Thanks (I must have been drunk when I posted these, I doubled up on one pic and posted the title in the wrong place:-)) I looked up the brown duck in my field guide and was suprised to read it was the female version of the mallard duck.
