well, I was incorrect. this beautiful duck is a Muscovy duck. I confused it with a Cormorant .thanks to donnena for the identity
Cormorant are plentiful at this creek and on a website it showed what more than likely is a Muscovy duck also.
so many breeds of ducks cross-breed and what comes from it is anyone's guess

Great series of photos! They really 'quack' me up! All great looking captures! Bravo!

Decidedly, I have a serious doubt that it is a cormorant, but the captures are great

I'm pretty shure too, that this is not a cormorant. Cormorants have longer beak with a very characteristic hook at the end, and a much longer neck. This head and break seems to belong to a dug. In the last years many "new" sorts of dugs appear. They are crossings between different dug sorts and even crossings between dug and goose. Perhaps this is one of these...
