I walked Symphony Lake in Cary today and saw, in addition to plenty of mallards, canada geese, cormorants and herons, a lone brown duck. It was off by itself. It was brown but more of a coppery, vibrant brown, not a dull brown. The beak was dark and it's head was two-toned, darker on the upper part of it's head. It is on the smaller side, smaller than the mallards. I did not see it dive.
