Ferruginous duck ?

Hi,

I think it could be ferruginous duck (Moorente/Aythya nyroca).

If this is true it should have had a white patch at the back, which is not visible on your photo.

I saw some of them 2 days ago an will post the images tomorrow.

Looks like a very brown Mallard type duck sp. Shape is all wrong for Ferruginous.
