    A particular word for masculine duck indeed exists, I could give a hint by missing "no word" option. I learned it from my grandmother who lived in a villiage and her parents kept different animals including feminine and masculine ducks.

    Wouldn't it be just a dialectal one?

    Ok, you've spoiled it! Селезень is the correct answer.

    I remember myself about 5 years old to play with words and ask my grandmother if there are кошка and кот, then for утка it must be ут
