This duck really confused me...she looks like a Mallard, but her coloring is way off. After quite a bit of research, I found that experts call birds that look like other species around it, and act like them, too, "Mutants". They are a combination of albinism and mutant genes. This gal looks just like a female Mallard except for the coloration of her plumage. Hence the title and my duck dynasty mystery solved!!
