Wild muscovy on the river behind the house.  She can't hurt you, but

That mother duck will defend her chicks. Excellent nature photo. Thank you for hosting this blog and allowing us to post our pictures here.

I see them in Florida too. They are awkward and weird. But I love all birds and animals.

That's a unique duck, good catch. I looked it up and they're supposed to be in Mexico and Central and South America. Hey duck, you are realllly lost.

She is a good mother and protects her offspring!

We have some scary birds too - like the emu for instance - I don't like there intense eyes and beak - I wouldn't want to get too close!

Rose said...

The babies are darling!

A mother will go all the way to protect her babies. Great photo.

That is a barnyard duck with mixed parentage, not a wild Muscovy, which is mainly found in Central America. In Costa Rica you can see the true wild birds in flocks numbering into the thousands. For anyone visiting there Palo Verde is a great spot for these birds.

There's something cheerful and humorous about ducks, Betty - they always make me smile!

Such a cute goose. I love your description of her “ She can’t hurt you but she will act like she can”. Thanks for the party.

Congratulations on this Linky party! Ducks can be very territorial, especially when they are raising young.

She doesn't have to worry about me!
