hybrid wood duck x domestic mallard?

probably hybrid Wood duck x domestic duck (or wood duck x  mallard with domestic duck genes?)?

The "mallard" parent would have been something like this:

Yes, the bibbed pattern (in Dutch: witborst) is dominant in domestic ducks, so it makes sense that the hybrid expresses it too. In bibbed ducks, the outer 1-4 primaries are often white too; that may also be the case in this hybrid?

Interesting that the domestic coloration is so dominant.
