After doing a Google Image search for "black swede duck" I think you're right, hate to admit it, only because I was hoping it would be something cool.
The only thing about it that makes me think otherwise is the body shape. The images of the domestic ducks show they have more of a "tank ***
" like I call it which makes them unable to fly. This duck in my pics has the same body shape as the mallards around it, not disproportionate on the tail-end. I'm assuming it can fly because I've seen it on 2 different ponds and the only way from one to the next is by flying because of high fences and a steep incline between the two.
If if the duck is a Black Swede, I read they are good eating, so maybe I'll get lucky and it will fly out with the mallards to the fields and I can smack it.
