Ms. Muscovy



Ms. Muscovy is the only duck here who flies much. The Indian Runners can't be bothered, Ms. Mallard prefers to waddle, and Mr. Muscovy is too heavy to get off the ground (unless Jasmine is chasing him).

Lately she has learned that on the rim of the dog pen (that serves as their nighttime predator protection), she'll be away from the drakes' loving attentions, yet remain part of the flock. Being part of the flock is pretty important to ducks.

The roof of the workshop is Ms. Muscovy's other favorite place to land.

Smart duckie indeed!

I am so envious that you get to have ducks in your life. I love ducks.

Looks like she's showing a little "breast" there.

KF, too bad she's not smart enough to figure out how to hatch eggs...

Anne, they are funny, but messy. Verrrrry messy.

Pablo, heh. We did talk at one time of setting up the game cam just behind the chicken coop, but figured we'd just get 50 million pics of ducks and chickens.

Jill, oh yeah, she's shameless!

Love your naming the game around there! I just posted pics of Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal here in our yard -- they are like old friends to us. (I talk to them, too, but don't tell anyone!) Do you talk to yours?
