Crested Male Mallard | Brazoria County Photographer

This crested male mallard duck is quite interesting he looks as though it is wearing a Pouf hat on his head.

This is actually a gene mutation and there is a gap in the skull on the back of the head that grow these strange-looking feathers in some fatty tissue.

We saw quite a few different kind of ducks sporting the new hats. Who knew ducks could be so fashionable.
