Greetings All

The CO odd-duck doesn't look much like a Black-bellied Whistling, ahem, Duck.
Its companions, the green head (not visible in pics but mentioned in text), large bill all point to one parent being a N Shoveler.
The sides of the bird are reminiscent of a BWTeal x NOSH cross, but the face pattern is utterly wrong. It reminds me much of a White-cheeked Pintail, which is, I suspect, the other parent. 
I've once seen a WC Pintail x Gadwall at the Everett Sewage Ponds.
Such birds are undoubtedly escapes, but interesting nonetheless.
