Hi Melani,

https://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2019/01/hybrid-ducks-are-common.html calls this a "Bibbed Mallard" and says it's a cross between a mallard and a domestic farm duck "of some sort." I found a couple of images of very similar ducks on the web, but no good documentation of ancestry.

Subject: [EBB-Sightings] Mallard hybrid at Meeker Slough

Today I saw a Mallard hybrid while birding Meeker Slough in Richmond. Does anyone have any idea what this mallard has hybridized with? Photo is on my eBird report.
