    Hello! I just recently went birding in a local town and ran into 2 different water birds I'm unable to identify. I apologize beforehand for the quality of the pictures, as I only had my phone on me at the time. The first 2 I have a few pictures of, and they look like they might be different...

    This brood comes to our little pond for the corn I place just under the surface along its edge. We also get Wood Ducks. It's amazing how they fly through the woods without hitting a thing.

    What bird/duck is this? New Hampshire, USA

    I saw this duck with a large group of mallards and a couple of American Black Ducks. The duck I am having trouble identifying is the black one with the white breast/chest. Is it some sort of hybrid/sub species?

    A couple of days later I was walking along the river again and got one of my targets for the Lockdown list in a Mallard. This one showing the more unusual bluish iridescence on his head.
