These 5 white ducks are unknown. I haven’t been able to find them in any bird book. The body looks like that of a Mallard, but the coloring (white/brown) is different. The neck is longer. The bill looks similar to the Mallard. They do have the curled tails. They tip up for food gathering. There is a Mallard beside them so you can compare. Might they be albino Mallards? They were on Cuba Lake for the first time on 11-23-22 in the afternoon. Thank you for your help.

Interesting…They might be leucistic American Black Ducks… Look up American Black Ducks, they are very similar to Mallards and sometimes hybridize with them.
Hope this helped!
