Hello Soumen,
This is not a duck, but a Canadian Goose. Good sharpness and nice natural colours with a nice matching background too.
Have a good weekend,

Hi Soumen,
Not a duck at all but Canada Goose (Branta canadensis) as already told by the colleagues. Very nice shot, but please try to create decent notes to your newer pics also, because it's asked by the site owners, written in the TOS we all agreed with when registered to this site. And you know, the motto of this site is "learning from nature through photography". So, for the photo, congratulations. I wanted to give 2 points, but no note = no reward.
Best regards, László

Hi Soumen.
Nice portrait of the Canadian Goose. Sunlight underlined shapes and colouration of the bird as well as other details perfectly. Exposure is precise despite the contrast object. I also like framing of the goose. Excellent job. TFS and best regards.
