    Oh, wow, pretty! I was going to say "silver splash," but that pattern looks too regular for a splash. I'm going to guess pencilled. I don't have any pictures, but a quick Google images will turn some up for you. Or here's one: http://www.avianweb.com/indianrunnerducks.html (third from the left at the top, and also the featured duck in the second picture down).

    Keep us updated with pics! So pretty!

    This is a Hookbill, if I'm not mistaken!! Not a runner at all! Very beautiful bird. Looks like the Hookbill version of a snowy call!

    The bill sure is reminiscent of a hook bill, isn't it?
