Blonde Phase Mallard

Travis Frank

Have you ever seen this duck before?  It's called a blonde phased mallard.  Not to be mistaken for an albino duck, this is a very rare find.  At least that is what I am told.  I got a tip from a buddy and sure enough it was there when we arrived.  I'd be lying if I told you that I had to trek far and deep into the wilderness to find this pretty lady.  Truth be told, she was hanging out in the park with a bunch of other feathered friends.  Only difference was that she was as white as can be.  I have also learned that this phase only occurs in the female, otherwise known as a hen.  If you look closely you'll see that her eye has no red in it all.  I'm no duck expert, but I believe albino critters typically have red eyes.  So there you have it, now you can tell your friends you've seen a blonde duck.  Cool Beans!
