Terry is the one who was there to see more than just the photo. Maybe it
would be nice if he would inform us why he asked the question. Because from
what I see, it is an very ordinary looking sleeping P Black Duck. I don't
see any reason (in the photo) to go beyond that....... 

I can't see any Maned (Wood) Duck in it. Not a great colour match (too
brown). In this photo the stripes on the face converge towards the back of
the head, as on a P Black Duck but on the Maned (Wood) Duck they are more
This is what I sent to him yesterday:

Are you referring to the ordinary looking sleeping P Black Duck on the
right, or the two hard to identify black birds behind and to its left?
