Among all the birds at the park yesterday, i saw the oddest little duck, i couldnt for the life of me think what she was...

she was:


-Wild
-Call-sized
-Black
-Constantly Diving (nearly non-stop!)
-Had a short, odd-shaped beak, it met high on the face, Like a tiny goose beak!!!


most the birds were mallards(VERY friendly too!) and domestic mixes people had left. there was also a wood duck hen, she was beyond cute! BUT i know i've seen this kind of duck before!! i just cant put a name to it.

...it was so odd, it was under water more than above & stayed far far away.

this is the closest thing i could find..i think this is an Austrailian Wood Duck? BUT this duck was jet black, no 'hair-do'. the woody hen was also black but had the fancy head, her beak looked different.

Well It sure does sound exotic. Even though the woodies are very pretty - ive just never been a fan of them or some of the "rare" expensive ducks

I wish i had a pond like that around here. I mean the retirement home around here has a bunch of ducks ( too many in my opinion ) but I dont live in that area anymore.

I can see you when you get old, out there at the retirement community with a dog carrier and some bread or corn, trying to lure the ducks in, lol.

Retirement community? really ? Me? nah ah. Thats what I will ( hopefully ) have grand kids for

" Maggie, would you be a dear and go get grandma that purdy blue duck in the neighbors pond? It would make my dear old heart so happy"
