Whatchamacallit. I think it is a Mallard, Gadwall cross but not sure.
None the less it is an interesting individual.

I think - looking at the head shape and colours - and the body speckles, this has some Teal in it, Karl! What a beauty!

What a find! A beautiful hybrid, whatever it is. I always wonder what happens to these birds-are they outcasts. or do they keep breeding or??

I think I would vote for Mallard x Pintail.

After a little search on the web, the duck appear to be a Brewers Duck which is a cross between mallard and gadwall…
