Wednesday morning 6/27 at the Sunnyvale WPCP west oxidation pond, I casually photographed an adult duck with young. When I got home, I realized the adult was darker than a typical female mallard, and didn't seem to match any breed suggested by the Merlin Bird ID app.
Here is an album with two samples from the same original, one with the shadows lightened to show more detail on the birds' exteriors. I'm curious to know what they are.
