came to area just before Autumn. is always surrounded by small white ducks
No interactions present.
its wings are like seagulls when they are in the water and its twice the size of a mallard
Domestic Mallards come in all sorts of different plumages, shapes and sizes but they are still all Mallards (in the same way that all dogs are one species). This one looks like a 'mongrel' rather than a pure breed.
ok thanks :D
No need to apologise for not knowing something! :o)
Most people have difficulty believing that domestic ducks are Mallards (the exception being Muscovy Ducks) - especially when you see a selection of different breeds together!
The wings in your photos are a deformity sometimes known as "angel wings" by the way, something which is caused by the wrong diet being fed while the wings are developing.
ok thanks for the info :D
