Colorful Baby

Baby and colorful plume around neck with brown sable looking head. My nephew found this bird and picked it up. Don't know what he did with it-he posted the pic on Facebook so I copied the pic. Want to tell him what it is and to call wildlife bird rescue.

Is it a duck?
by: Anonymous

He put the baby back, and I guess it's fine. He does look like a duckling except for the beak. Do they look that way as babies? Also, this was in the forest, not sure how close to water. He's really pretty. Still don't know but I will look up ducks in Northern California. Who knows? Thanks!
