Attached File  B0011376.JPG   1.14MB   37 downloadsI took a picture of these ducks in a private pond in the middle of a subdivision in the woodlands, texas area. I have searched for hours trying to find out what they are called. Does any one have any ideas or suggestions? Thx

Agree with Egyptian Goose.
