Muscovy Duck

In my previous post, I shared a great photo of a beautiful Spotted Dove in Kauai.  While we are in Kauai, let’s just stay there and visit another beautiful and unique bird.

Muscovy Duck - Smith's Tropical Paradise

Muscovy Duck – Smith’s Tropical Paradise

I believe this is a Muscovy Duck or at least a variation of one, and I saw it as I strolled the beautiful garden of Smith’s Tropical Paradise with my camera in May 2008.  What appears to be a bit unique on this particular duck is the red and black highlight on its face, instead of just a sold red highlight that seems to be more typical of Muscovy Ducks.

This was a delightful creature that was good to pose for me for a couple of minutes as I took its photograph.  Strolling this beautiful garden was such a great experience, and I have even more photos to share over time here from that visit.
