Finally got some birds down and had some great hunts. Shot our 5 man Thursday (Arkansas) and 6 man Saturday. Thursday we shot this really cool Gad. Heard of it but never seen one like it. I'm guessing it has some Mallard in it? The white ring is the only feature that resembles a Mallard though. Ever seen one like it?

They're not looking for one thing right....they're looking for one thing wrong.
Great looking bird and yes it's just a gad. Many species are very closely related and carry recessive genes of other species. It's not terribly uncommon to see a trait if one species pop out in another.
Lotta collector hunters would love to get that bird.
