Wet Muscovies

Muscovy Ducks after a Rain Shower

duckThis was a few weeks ago. We haven't had any measurable rain since then so things are looking dry.

This pair lives at the community lake beside the other kinds of ducks. One of these birds had an infection this summer. A kind neighbor took him to the animal rescue in Millwood and he recovered. He looks well now.

  5. How sweet someone took that poor bird to the vet! Wonderful that it is better now. The pictures were cute...the pair all water-logged! :-)

  9. "Good weather for ducks' is how my father used to describe rain - but these guys look like its even too much for them!!

    Great shots.
