Black or brown duck

Today was hot, too hot be be outside so I took to my computer under the air con. I was organising my photos and hadn’t tagged this pic. OK, they’re ducks, but what sort???

They are called Pacific Black Ducks. That’s correct these brown ducks are actually brown. But wait. Look closer there is actually a strip of black on their faces. There is now, after I adjusted the color on the computer! No, really, it just looks black from a distance. That’s why there’re called Black Ducks

Speaking of colors, they also have a very aqua blue spot. It’s sort of hidden under their feathers, but when they spread their wings you can’t miss it. Look at the bottom duck.

And then I read that they’re actually called Grey Ducks in New Zealand. No wonder I get confused with all this bird stuff.
