The President answered back almost immediately, complimented us on the sighting and the photo and told us it was a hermaphroditic oddity that occurs on occasion to female ducks that have stopped producing estrogen due to either old age or damaged ovaries.
As a result, the hen takes on male characteristics resulting in a rather odd looking duck with both female/male markings.
I'm thinking there were some good ole California boys that learned something new that day!
