It is a crested duck. Tame, not wild.

My wife and I from near Boonville, Mo. Of course we haven't had a Mo geography class in at least 4 decades nor lived there, so where is the highest point in Mo?

If guessing I'd say way south down by Arkansas but I really have no clue except it ain't near our Mo River bottoms farm.

BTW I know I have seen that duck in the park ponds but haven't a clue about its type.

Nahhhh! If it was it would be drowned by all the gold around its neck.

But it's very interesting to say the least. Where are they bred?

I am not sure where FroDucks are bred!

This picture looks like it was taken along the ocean??

On second thought, no, looks like a lake. So maybe around MN and Canada?

Robt, the highest point is Missouri is Taum Sauk Mountain, which is about 5 miles south and west of me (as the crow flies--by road it is 15 miles.)

I live about 70 miles south of St. Louis, in Iron County.

I took this pic here, where I live. It's the only one that we have seen. Other than the puff on it's head, it look like a Mallard, which are all over here.
