Attractive Mallard variant at Pitsford reservoir.

Well, I caused quite a stir when I posted this image on the Birdforum  I.D. section yesterday by describing these ducks as Mallard hybrids.

I consider myself well and truly told off when advised in no uncertain terms that they are not Hybrid ( an inter species cross ) but Mallard variants. 

My original point however was that ( no matter how you describe them ) these examples are actually quite unusual and, to my eyes, visually attractive, almost ornamental.
