World Bird Wednesday II

Muscovy Duck-Cairina Mochata

I wanted to take a fresh hot off the press photo to contribute to World Bird Wednesday over at the Pine River Review Blog, but alas...its been dreary and rainy for the past couple of days so Im pulling out a recent shot  (October)...this Duck with her young was sunning on the bank of the Oak Creek pond near my sisters home in Greer, SC.  Every time I go there I always visit the "duck pond" as we call it.  Have seen other wonderful birds there from time to time also.  But I wanted to show off these little fuzz balls-

  7. I would have wanted a better look at mummy duck. The ducklings look like other ducklings even if they are sweet. But the grownup I have not seen earlier.
