White stripe on the speculum = mallard hen. I didn't see it until Jon Paul pointed it out.

Not to mention a Mottled Duck is much darker overall than a mallard hen. You should be able to cut the wings off a Mottled Duck and Mallard hen, lay them next to each other and tell the difference in the two. They don't even look remotely similar.

I could see someone mistaking a Black Duck for a Mottled Duck or a Mexican Mallard for a Mottled Duck but a Mallard Hen for a Mottled Duck? Come on...

Seeing I wasn't there I took my guides word for it. It was a mistake. Please stay positive on comments or do not comment at all!


Thanks

I have shot greenhead drakes out in the salt flats before. I wouldn't say it was rare just not common at all. If JP had not stated it, I would never have caught that.
