The sheer size of this duck suggests hybridization to me, in addition to some mixing of muscovy and domestic duck coloration. The head and bill shape, are of course, completely mallard, so could this be some weird mix of very large mallard breeds? I'm not sure.

For size comparison, look at the photos of the duck swimming alongside Egyptian geese, which look small in comparison.

Description

On a recent trip to the Sunshine Skyway Fishing Pier with Friends of the Pelicans (https://www.friendsofthepelicans.org/), we found nine injured pelicans, and one great blue heron which we failed to catch and save. All had fishing hooks in them. Many were entangled in fishing lines. One had a mysterious head injury. Volunteers from Friends of the Pelicans caught the birds and removed the hooks. Eight of them still had to be taken to a bird hospital. Out of respect for these birds, each of the ones I got pictures of will get a separate observation.
How can you help?

  1. If you hook a pelican (or another bird), Never cut the line! Cut off the hook’s barb and back the hook out of the bird.
  2. If you find a bird in need of assistance or hospitalization, call a licensed wildlife rescue center.
  3. While fishing, be aware of birds in the area.
  4. Never feed pelicans. Feeding them will make them more likely to beg from fishers and put them at higher risk for entanglement.
  5. If you are on a tall pier, don’t try to reel in the bird. Use a cast-net (pictured here) to catch it.
    Thank you everyone for caring about our pelicans!

Photo 1:
One of the coolest beetles I've ever seen & a first for me. Found on a tree trunk by 2 of my young grandkids who immediately ran to show me. It looked cool & when I did my research, the story was even cooler. Ironclad beetles get their name from the fact they are almost impossible to kill. Their exoskeleton is so strong you can't kill it by stomping on it, you can even drive a car over it and it survives. They have the nickname of nature's jawbreaker cause would be predators can't crack them open.
Photo 2:
They are found in wooded areas, often on pecans, oaks & elms. Larvae are found in dead trees where they eat the fungi on rotting wood. Both adults & larvae eat lichens, dead wood & fungi. They don't harm living trees and provide a clean up service for damaged and dead trees. They don't hurt humans either, both I & the grandkids enjoyed letting it crawl over our arms.
Check this out: "MIND-BLOWING Ironclad Beetle Fact: Science, of course, is interested in this impenetrable insect. The composition of the layers of its exoskeleton have been parsed, and the potential applications are pretty amazing. It is being “copied” in a design for the suspension system of combat vehicles, with the hope that it can bounce back after an IED or other explosion. Even better, First Place in the 2018 NASA competition to design habitats for Mars (the 3D Printed Habitat Challenge) went to Team Zopherus!" (https://uwm.edu/field-station/texas-ironclad-beetle/)
