It's a wood duck.I'm surprised it hasn't died as they are high strung birds and any little thing will stress them to death.

In N.H.,Tony.

Plus, wood ducks are commonly bred domestically so once it is grown, there is no way of telling if it was wild or not anymore... I know Attimus' Qbert has a good, happy life and home and wouldn't have if Attimus had done what was 'supposed' to be done...

I'm not one to flaunt breaking laws, but sometimes there is room to bend... smile.png
