This Morning's Hike - Berkeley Park

This beauty was on the lake this morning. Never seen a duck quite like this one.
Update: I'm told that this is a Goose/Duck hybrid, something that occurs in city parks where Geese and Ducks live in close proximity.

Do you mean "goose/duck hybrid" instead of "geese/duck hybrid"? I hope so, for trying to imagine the etiology of the first one is difficult.

Nice picture.

Thank you, Jeffrey. Indeed, "goose/duck" is what I meant. The question: Given one duck, how many geese does it take to make a "hybrid?" Hmmmm...
