For some reason Mom loves the duck and geese at MY park. She is always taking them all our left over bread and loves when new ones arrive. She has her favorites of coarse Mr Tuffy is number 1. He is an adorable black duck with a tuff on his head. Mom looked him up online and found he is called "a domestic crested duck" Mr Tuffy has a little white duck as his partner and they swim everywhere together. We also see them sitting side by side on the grass all the time and they look so cute. Wouldn't it be fun if they had a little white baby with a black tuff on its head!
Next there is Mr Tuxs - Mom says he looks like a penguin in his black and white colors and that he looks like he is wearing a tuxedo. The duck on the end is his partner and that one in the middle is a little male - their baby that they had last year - he just never wanted to leave and stayed with them all winter. Then there is Mr Speckles and his partner. He is a kind if pied Mallard - he has the mallards coloring on the head but brown speckles on the front and his back half is white - except for his tail.
Lastly we have a greylag goose - this one is actually a young one from last year. Sadly the father goose got hit by a car over winter and had a broken wing that got infected and he died and we haven't seen the mother bird since then. The other babies (she had 3) left but this one stayed. Then the ones most peeps in the USA dislike the most (because they poop in abundance everywhere) - the Canada Geese.
Now you are probably wondering where we were the whole time - can you believe Mom made ME sit there watching - how cruel is that - she KNOWS I am the goose chaser extraordinaire ! The Dweeb of coarse was browsing on some grass - hey maybe he is silly goose - they like to eat grass too!
