Thanks for the help on the ID. Here is the male, and not at all like a mallard. But you are probably right, some kind of hybrid
Yes, probably a mix of domesticated varieties of Mallard. Their appearance can vary anywhere from pure white with an orange bill (pekin, domesticated in China over 1000 years ago) to that of wild-type Mallard plumage, although noticeably more portly than the wild birds.

The grey Heron was content to absorb some lovely sunshine. Amazing how they can stand still for hours on end!

Another image of the young hawk that was just standing by the road. Thanks to help from a better birder than I, I'm pretty confident it's a juvenile red-tailed hawk.
