Hi, all.
I'm very new to birding and have pretty much no idea what I'm looking at most of the time. Could somebody help ID this bird? It looks like a mottled duck, but one web page I was reading said they lived in Florida. I'm in Massachusetts, so he might be a bit out of his normal territory... or I'm way off on the ID.
thanks.

Looks like a Mallard to me.

Pretty common over here in the UK.
