Does anyone know what this could be. It was flying with a male woodduck and we thought it was a female woodduck without her colors, but others said it could be an albino. Please let me know if you have a theory on "Weird Duck" :thumbsup:

Looks to me like a leucistic female wood duck. Basically its a wood duck with a genetic anomaly that causes the pigmentation to be missing on parts of the animal (almost like partial albinism).

Cool bird at any rate.
Fish, feathers, and photography...that's pretty much what makes me tick.

it looks to me to be an immature drake woodie with some sort of color pigment issue

definetly a hen woodie with white in its head.. could have bred with a weird barnyard duck or just an off coloring... not a juv drake the bill on a juvenile shows some of the colors same as a mature drake

Dave is right, see this alot in redhead and bluebill hens where I hunt. Leucistic ducks throw alot of people off.

I know what it is. Wood duck mutations are sometimes bred to natural woodies. If you go to mallardlane.com you can veiw some of these. IIt was most likely bred with one.I raise lots of ducks and other poultry. This year I reared 150 muscovy ducks. I believe the mutations are called silvers. I am going to raise 200 quail and some pheasants this spring. I am getting 5 Canada geese next month.

Totally agree, although can't throw out the barnyard cross option.
