Mottled Duck

Anas fulvigula

The Mottled Duck can be mistaken for the American Black Duck and the hen Mallard. The Mottled Duck is lighter than the American Black Duck and its blue wing patches are rimmed with black rather than white as on the hen Mallard. The Mottled Duck is a southern species found in Florida, all along the entire Gulf Coast and the southern Atlantic coast.
