not a widgeon at River Park


Don Tate
 

Thanks to Lisa, Jaime & Wes for informing me the bird was no wigeon. Lisa liked caller duck, Jaime suspected hybrid due to mallard-ish traits. Its white crown suggests wigeon ancestry to moi, FWIW. Call ducks went from devious decoys to now-popular show and pet ducks, link: https://www.purelypoultry.com/call-ducklings-p-1098.html See you at the duck show,
