Thanks for the feedback everyone. I’m going to change my eBird report to Mallard (Domestic) for this one. 

I do think it’s a pretty duck!

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.

That russet chestnut is interesting - but I'd be surprised if it's anything but a domestic Mallard mashup.... There are so many many possibilities.
