Two Wierd Ducks
They both have similar markings but they don't look exactly the same. They both have a black rump, head markings similar to an American Wigeon but not the right colors, and yellow bills.
Their back and wing feathers are similar to a wigeon.
field markings and the mallard-like yellow beak. There were two American Wigeons in nearby waters but I didn't see a Mallard any where around. There is no doubt that these two ducks will turn heads throughout the remainder of their lifetime.
