I am trying to become more familiar with the local birds and wondered if
someone could assist in an ID for me.  I was at Branford Supply Pond
Saturday afternoon and photographed a mallard drake.  His head coloration
looks funny and it's my understanding that the molting process should be
done by now.  Any thoughts on this being a hybrid and with what might he be
crossed?  I've posted pictures here:
