What I got??
How come the rare ones fall apart when you flesh them! YIKES!!
I don't know what you got. It's purdy though!
Looks like a leucistic mallard to me
One was shot here in Montana last year. I looked it up it was a smoky phase mallard.
Looks like a color phase, not quite as extreme like a silver wood duck.
I got this one coming in soon.
pastel mallard domestic color phase
I saw an identical drake at our local bird sanctuary. The rare ones never want to eat from your hand for some reason HA! I mounted the hen equivalent (I think) a little while ago. The hunter called it a blonde mallard. I’m not sure how accurate that term is.
Domestic mallard. Pastel is what they call that color in mallards and call ducks
Blonde mallard is a common term used for the females that have that smoke phase prevalent in its colors. It occurs in turkeys and other birds too, similar to the piebald deer, where the pigments don’t produce the normal colors.
