Here's my e-mail. Sometimes I have trouble getting pictures on this old computer. [The starter rope is about worn out} Other times they do OK. I really would be interested in seeing Mr./Ms. duck just due to curiousity. Maybe some of the other people might also? I am always willing to offer an opinion [ask anyone who knows me!]
and if I can determine anything from a picture, I'll let you know. Any sign of pinfeathers?

The bird was taken late in our season. Sometime in December. The belly feathers(hen feathers) look the same size shape as the normal drake feathers. Don't think they are pin feathers. Noticed bill is mostly black. But no orange like a hen first half black top half yellowgreen.

No one doubts your observance. When nature presents us with the unusual, there is usually an answer to the dilemma. Would like to very much to see your specimen. Send pics, and if you would like, I will forward necropsy procedure to ascertain sex, or put you in touch with the science community to further study you discovery.

I wanna see...

haven't seen picture but i raised wild ducks for 20 plus years, sometimes when a hen get a little age or goes through a change she will take on male plumage and stop breeding and laying.

I just read your post and was wanting to see a picture of this bird. I believe that I may have seen a similar bird a few years ago in a state park wildlife area in Kansas. It was during duck season but in a safe no hunting area. I wish I could have shot that bird to add to my collection. Thanks for your help.
