Just for the record, white mallards in semi-domesticated situations might be albinos, but they also might be Pekin ducks. This common domesticated white variety is originally derived from the mallard. There are also a number of other domesticated breeds of duck that can be white. The key to "albino" is pink eyes, bill, and feet.

There is an albino female Mallard in Loose Park, in Kansas City, Mo. Any
idea if this is rare?
