A new duck was added to the pond today. He was duckling owned by family with lots of kids. He was given the name Ivan because he’s a Muscovy duck, and they are Russian eh?
They are actually from Latin America, ranging as far north as the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. No one has a good idea about why they are called “Muscovy ducks.”
But Ivan is a monster. He has the mallards outclassed by nearly two and half times. And Phil and his harem of underage hens (including his own sister) are afraid of the giant duck with evil wattles on his face.
