On my recent visit to Kaziranga National Park in Assam, India, I came across a large heavy looking duck which was most beautiful. This was a male mallard. It has a long grey body with head and neck glossy green. The border of the neck has a white ring and a yellow bill with blue patch on top of wings. The voice is a loud wheezy yheep. It is mainly seen in the north eastern part of India in rivers and ponds.
