Black Duck-Mallad Hybrids in N. Durham Co.

	On Sunday Janet and I went to the beaver pond along Roxboro Road (w. side) 
which is located N. of the Little river Bridge, and S. of South Lowell Rd.

	We saw 6 pair of Mallard-type ducks at least 4 of which were mallard-black 
hybrids.  Having read the storm of letters to the editor in this months 
Birding magazine,  I realize now that I didn't look closely enough, and 
without the proper field guide with me, I did not check to determine the 
parentage of the females.  Mea culpa.
