Literally, a duck in my yard on April 1st. As far as I know, not a prank.
I’m not entirely familiar with duck species, and thus was taken aback by the appearance of the Muscovy drake with red puffy skin covering much of the face. I snapped these photos; realizing this was a domesticated bird as he approached me for food.
He lingered until sundown before taking wing over the city in a westerly direction.
