    Dear members,
    I need your help ...I have 2 problems below:

    1) I had been looked for photoes of Greenland Mallard ducks (anas platyrhynchos conboschas) in google, but I did not find any photoes of Greenland Mallard ducks.

    2) I did not find anything to tell diffenence between North American Mallard ducks (anas platyrhynchos maculosa) and European Mallard ducks (anas platyrhyncho platyrhchos).

    Can you please send me the photoes of Greenland Mallard ducks.

    Your help would be appreciated.

    I would guess that there may be one in Frank Todd's book. Otherwise, I would contact some of the researchers, such as Tony Fox in Denmark who has done a lot of work in Greenland. My understanding is that size is the only difference, there are no color differences.
