I've never seen one exactly like it, and can't find it online anywhere. It reminds me of a wood duck, but still very different.
Me and a friend see it at this pond we've been fishing at a little bit lately, and he's really curious. I say "he" because he seems to bully the
other ducks/ducklings in the pond.
He'll paddle up to within 30 feet of us while we're standing around casting, and occasionally go into little bouts of swimming up to where our casts
land and swimming like a penguin up to the bank within a few feet of us, swimming around there for a bit, and going back out another ten feet or so
I'm pretty sure he's just looking for an easy meal, but I've never encountered a duck that acted or looked like this one.
