Your mystery bird is a moulting drake Mallard. In about a month most ducks still in this interim stage will have fresh plumage.

It's not the most confusing Mallard I've seen lately. Most of the many hundreds that are in our area are in some stage of moult and the variations are considerable. This goes for most of the ducks right now. A few male Woodies have come into full plumage along with a few Mallards but there are not many yet.
