Cute Baby Duck?

When is a baby duck not a baby duck?  In this case, the small duck in this picture is not a baby Mallard, but a Call Duck, a small domestic variety of Mallard. It waddled up to my car the other day with the full-sized Mallards at one of my local ponds in Clinton, NJ.  Note also the interesting plumage, without the dark brown chest of a wild drake Mallard.
