If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
Then it must be a duck. Actually, a Muscovy duck, very different from all others. First, the face...a mask of red bumps called carnucles. Muscovys are from South and Central America. This is the only domestic duck that is not derived from Mallard ancestors. They live for seven or eight years, but can live up to twenty! I am glad I spotted this couple to show you.
