Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata) - 24Jun2016

While on the subject on established exotics or in this case established domestics, I might as well post this ugly duckling and add it to my list.  In Texas Muscovy Ducks are considered "wild" and usually are all black which some white restricted in the wings.  In Florida the Muscovy Ducks are domestic birds that have gone feral and established.  They can have a much more varied patterning in Florida and just look domestic.  They hang out on suburban lawns and parks and do not have much fear of humans. I do hope to eventually get the "wild" birds in TX but the ABA allows the ones in Florida to be counted so count it I will.  These were found in Miami Springs, FL.

This is brutal and barbaric.  She was practically being drowned.

A little post-coitus posturing.
