Presumed hybrid Chestnut Teal x (Yellow-billed Pintail?). The red eye, chestnut tones and white auxillaries and underwing coverts (below) seems to suggest Chestnut Teal to be one of the parents. The yellowish-tinged basal area of the bill and the wide edging to the secondaires perhaps suggests Yellow-billed Pintail as the other parent but the contrasting crown and nape don't seem to fit either species. Hybrids ducks can show features and colours that are not necessarily present on either parent so its all a bit of guess work.
