Dear Jörn,

Thanks a lot for the explanation and the photo with the wilde eend x krakeend.
It's clear to me now!

Best regards,

Beste Robert van Arkel,

De foto's laten een andere soort zien: Hybride Smient x Wilde Eend - Mareca penelope x Anas platyrhynchos.

Met vriendelijke groet,
Joern Lehmhus, Vogels-validator

beste Robert,

this is wilde eend x smient, look at the mainly bluegrey bill without black culmen and the tertial shape and pattern .

Wilde eend x Krakeend can look close , but with differently shaped and colored tertials and mostly not a grey bill.
If a grey bill occurs in that cross, it has in most cases a bill pattern close to pijlstaart. here is an example for that in wilde eend x krakeend

Best regards, Jörn Lehmhus, vogels-validator
