Ducks enjoying an icy river

Went for a drive today. Here’s what we saw.

These fine feathered friends of ours were certainly enjoying their afternoon romping in the river. Hop on the ice, jump in the water, swim a bit, hop back on the ice, repeat, repeat again. Ducks have a fine life.

I saw this neat duck

We were having lunch in Austin at the Hula Hut on Lake Austin. Before we were seated I looked over the deck and saw this duck.  I think he might be some kind of cross-breed. I like ducks, thus this picture.

If this is a breed of ducks, please chime in with the info, or if you agree it is a cross-breed, go ahead and chime in too.
