    Is this a Mallard or a mix or something else? Any input would greatly help [​IMG]
    We have an older mallard duckling (just older by a few weeks) who looked like this but had brownish stripes on it's body, its bill is brownish. This one has a yellowish/ white bill!

    I'm not sure, but it looks like it might be a Magpie.

    Are you sure it isn't a muscovy? Can you get us a picture of its feet?
