Now they have all but disappeared. In recent weeks we've seen only one lonely bachelor Muscovy.
Have the Muscovys simply abandoned our area, or are they leaving/declining in other SRQ communities?
Many of my neighbours have disdained them, because they are unattractive (beauty is in the eye of the beholder); and because of their copious droppings.
I like the Muscovy ducks on account of their insouciance. I miss them.
(On my trip to Vietnam I saw some Muscovys not far from the village where I spent a night with a Vietnamese family. They (the ducks) were a nice reminder of home.)
But here in SRQ I have to ask " Where have all the Muscovys gone?"
The following photo's are not mine. I lifted them from Google Images.
