 Let's just go with Noble Duck, whaddya say?

(Well, she IS a noble-looking duck! My guess is she's a hybrid Mallard. She has the orange feet and bill of a Mallard; the white blaze on her neck, though, comes from another kind of duck. According to the Audubon Society: The Mallard, readily interbreeding with other kinds of ducks, is the originator of most domestic duck varieties. The interbreeding can confuse photogs because of the variation in plumage:)
