    My "National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds" Eastern Region has a nice section with good pictures of wild ducks for identification. I have another field guide that is good too although I cannot find it right now to tell you the tittle. I don't think I have ever seen a book with both wild and domestic ducks though.

    I agree, the Field Guide to North American birds is great as is the regional versions of this book, especially for wild ducks. I'm not entirely sure if it's the best for domestic breeds, though.

    If you want one to identify most wild north american birds you should be able to go into walmart, pick up a hunting regulation and season booklet found in the hunting department and flip through to the waterfowl seasons and somewhere around there is a phone number to order a free duck identification booklet.
