Mystery solved

Well, I didn't think anybody was going to get it this week, but KellyRae sneaked in at the last minute. Yep, it's a Muscovy Duck. Ugly ain't they? Muscovies are not natives, though there are those who want them declared such. (Go figger). Admittedly, they're not quite as perturbing as some introductees, they can be a nuisance and do interfere, to some degree, with some of our native species.

Aint B, don't I know it! We once had a pond that was home to a small flock of muscovies and mallards. We named the biggest, ugliest muscovy Brutus. Nobody messed with that one.
