A stranger has arrived in our neighbourhood, one I have never seen before - a Muscovy duck whose ancestors hail from Latin America. They are said to be hardy lovers of freedom who escape farmyards and fly away with wild geese and ducks.
Another view of same duck
This Muscovy was silly to escape without another Muscovy. The geese and mallards sharing its pond shun this guy or gal now that they are thinking of starting families.
The Muscovy was not afraid of me but was hoping I was the bearer of a tasty goody, which I was not.
