    J5KID,

    Quite the couple of days you had... Time to buy a lottery ticket!

    Very cool hybrid... Looking at pictures on the net, of birds similar to yours, some call it a green-wing/cinnamon hybrid, and others call it a blue-wing/cinnamon hybrid... I'd make a guess, but would not want to put money on it either way... Seems like a blue-wing/cinnamon would be more likely as they are more similar birds, and both have reasonable breeding populations in California (although obviously far less blue-wings).

    Thanks guys for all the kind words. Wish I would have taken a pic of it next to a cinnamon, a trait that’s hard to tell from the pics also is that it had the speckled body like a bluewing too. I know it’s not to crazy looking of a hybrid but definitely a first for me.

    Thats not true, most are fertile unless a muscovy was in the mix. They dont have success breeding becuase they dont have the right colours or mating rituals because theyre mixed. Thats why theres black x mallard hybrids that are F2 or F3.
