Muscovy Duck

Hello all. Today we will be taking a moment to admire the majestic Muscovy. This creature is one of my favorite ducks! The photos truly do not do it justice (like my selfies).

The Muscovy is originally native to MexicoCentral, and South America. Not unlike Toyota automobiles, the domesticated Muscovy comes in a variety of colors; Black, Blue, Chocolate, Pied (white with any color mixed), White, Lavender, Bronze, Ripple and many more pastel colors, but these are very rare.


However, the true wild Muscovy duck, from which all domesticated Muscovys originated, is blackish, with large white wing patches.
