This duck became curious about me as I sat by the pond shore and swam by to check me out. I didn’t know what it was until Darren Shaw ID’d it as a Saxony drake.

great capture…. there are hybrids like that where I live…. they make for some interesting speculation..
Thanks Rich. Yes it was fun trying to figure it out.
Gorgeous shot! I love the gray color of the duck…I think you found a rare one!
Thank you Megan. I have no idea, aside from never having seen one like this before.
Very beautiful photo of this duck!

Thank you SueAnne.
whoooooo one of the best shots of a Saxony Drake i have seen he was so cute i had to look up what he was on the web turns out hes a Saxony Drake ,cant be common cos ive feed 1,0000000;s of ducks and never seen his breed before i just want to cuddle him
ps i am the duck king have a great new year
A Saxony drake? I’d never heard of a Saxony, and in all my searching I never found one listed. Thanks for the information, and the kind words!
i hope i got he name right but the pic on the web under that name looked the same
I looked it up and found a picture that looked just like this duck, so I believe you got it exactly right. Thank you Darren.
