Muscovy Duck

New bird life list is the Muscovy Duck
I saw the Muscovy Duck hanging out with a bunch of Mallards.

  • Muscovy ducks are highly intelligent; they are also very aggressive.
  • Muscovy ducks feed on the roots, stems, leaves and seeds of aquatic and terrestrial plants, including agricultural crops. They also eat small fish, reptiles, crustaceans, insects, millipedes and termites.
  • This species, like the mallard,ย does not form stable pairs.

  1. The first time I saw a Muscovy duck, I thought he was diseased and felt bad for him,. Then others came around and I realized that the irrigular groths on their face was their normal. They are different, I will say, but the more I see of them, the more I like them. Great set of pictures, Kevin.

  2. …we have them here in our town too….from what I’ve read about them, they’re silent…in other words no quacking like a ‘normal’ duck. It’s great for you to see a ‘new’ bird. I know I’m always thrilled.
