What's That?

This is a duck I saw at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. It was in a pond full of mallards. Any idea what it is?

Note: The duck in the picture is a gadwall. Thanks to Nisbett Family for that ID.


  1. It's a drake Gadwall. They're fairly common in MO, and I really like them, even though they aren't the most colorful.

  2. I've got a gadwall decoy in my collection. I really like these birds with their two color faces. That top photo of the solo gadwall looks just like the one on my shelf!
