I was looking at a bird list from the World Birding Center in Southern Texas and on the list they put "Mexican Duck" including the quotes. Does anyone know what a "mexican duck" is. Its not listed in Selbys.

"Mexican Duck", Anas (platyrhynchos) diazi, is currently a subspecies of Mallard, but they're sometimes split into their own species. They look similar to Mottled Ducks.
