Duck, Duck--Goose?
A recent visitor to Mirror Lake: The Muscovy Duck has bumpy, exaggerated, and gross red facial skin with a knob on top of the bill and lumps all over. The wild type plumage of muscovy is all black, glossy greenish on the back, and with large white wing patches. Domestic muscovies can be pure white, all black, or any degree of pied black-and-white.
