More on the mystery Mallard

A new theory for my mystery Mallard is far more reasonable. I believe now that it is an intersex Mallard; an elderly female which gradually looses its mottled plumage for the more splendid plumage of a male. You can see a photo of an intersex Mallard here. Intersex Mallards occur when a females estrogen decreases giving the appearance of a male.
Thanks to Warrech who suggested that it was a intersex.
