    I was told that this black duck is a hybrid because the secondary wings have white tips? Can anyone determine if this is true?

    Some say a small amount of white on the trailing edge of the speculum, like your bird shows, is acceptable for a pure black duck. If it shows on the leading edge though, it is without a doubt a hybrid.
