I believe it is what some call a Mallard mutt. It has the curled tail of a male Mallard, and other field markings, but what it is mixed with I cannot tell. Maybe someone else could give you a more complete answer.

A breed of domesticated duck, derived (as Chillybean says) from Mallard. No other species involved, though.
