I live in ontario there is a duck that looks like a male
mallard overwintering here its entire body is the same green color as a
mallard's head .A Gallinule ? A genetic mutation?
A purple gallinule is a possibility, the only one that even comes close,
though it seems unlikely they would overwinter in Ontario, and they have
bright red-orange bills.
