Flocks of ducks in Queen's Park are mostly exotic imported from western colder countries. As such they are here for showing in short periods.
The following description was taken from Wikipedia.

The Khaki Campbell is a breed of domesticated duck that originated in England and is kept for its high level of egg production. The breed was developed by Mrs. Adah Campbell of Uley, Gloucestershire, England at the turn of the 19th century. The "Campbell Duck" being introduced in 1898 and the 'Khaki' variety introduced to the public in 1901

Probable Khaki Campbell (Stanley Park's Lost Lagoon, December 1992). This duck was closely associated with a small white duck (probably domestic White Call duck) and was loosely associated with Mallards. It dabbled and was semi-tame. It was larger than a Mallard and had a long body, with the legs in the last third of the body. Except for a seal brown head, neck, and rump, the plumage was an overall creamy beige. We have included this duck because it shows many characteristics in common with both Canvasbacks and Mallards, illustrating the possible confusion that can result from a sighting in the wild.
