I agree, a female Muscovy. These photos are from a couple of years ago when I lived in Daytona Beach.

Muscovy's are considered a nuisance in some areas; people feed them so they hang around neighborhoods and make a mess on cars, sidewalks, etc.

Oh Lin, you made my day with those photos, all I can hear is Lucy saying, "I don't know, they look like pretty good duck trees to me!!"

I've only ever seen a Muscovy on a plate. You people are schoolin' me in all ways, big time!! Smiling

LOL, I had never seen a duck in a tree until a few years ago when I spotted those Muscovy's in my neighbors elm tree; it was pretty funny watching them waddle around on the branches!
