The Irresistible, Wild Muscovy Duck (2 images)

These ducks are not native to the southeast, but they are certainly a mainstay in and around parks, neighborhood ponds, lakes and marshy bogs. Most consider these large, quirky and interesting birds unattractive, but I love them. They’re truly funny and personable, and unafraid of humans.  In this species the male is obviously much larger and more colorful than the petite and amiable female.
