We believe this is a Common Merganser duck. Occasionally, it appears at our local pond and mingles with the Mallard ducks. It does not have a mate. We're quite fond of the Mallards, but this "duck of a different color" is a treat!
Welcome! I have lived in Gwinnett County GA since 1986, and am a recently retired residential REALTOR(R) (since 1985). I am an avid historian and genealogist, and love photography, so you'll see a little of everything Gwinnett on this site.
