The Muscovy Duck

entry picture

There once was an ugly duckling 
feathers white and black like a cow
With large clawed feet and a flat tail 
red wattles on its bill and brow

There once was an ugly duckling 
this bird had a distinguished look
Just in case you were wondering 
its name is The Muscovy Duck

We've got a few of those in our local park. I love them! Nice one for writing about the wee things!

Really liked this one.
Someone recently released a Muscovy duck on a local pond (wings clipped so it couldn't fly away) and the local residents were up in arms.
I know what you mean about being ugly.
