"The strange, warty-faced Muscovy Duck causes confusion for some bird watchers, as it's very distinctive and quite commonly seen, yet does not appear in some field guides. Truly wild individuals are restricted to south Texas and points south, but domesticated versions occur in parks and farms across much of North America.

Domestic varieties—heavier, less agile birds with variable plumage—live on farms and in parks in warm climates around the world, where they can be confusing to bird watchers.

The word “Muscovy” may refer to the Muscovy Company (incorporated in London in 1555), which transported these ducks to England and France." From AllAboutBirds.

Yesterday, 4 March 2021, I decided to drive south of the city while the weather was still good. My first destination was the Saskatoon Farm and, unlike on most of my visits, I made it in time to get a late breakfast there. The meals are served on large plates and there was so much delicious food. The omelette was stuffed full with tomatoes, bacon, cheese, and I ordered fries instead of their creamy hashbrowns. Their fries are the best fries anywhere. A small portion of fresh fruit was a nice addition. Two slices of toast, that I think smelled of licorice, looked most attractive with the swirl pattern in a darker colour. I was going to take a photo of it all, but only remembered AFTER I had finished - argh!

Two things that I was really looking forward to seeing, were some newly acquired domestic Muscovy Ducks and Quails. I could see that one of the Muscovy Ducks and one of the Quails were on nests. The only time I had ever seen Muscovy Ducks before was in late March 2019, at the Birding and Nature Centre, South Padre Island, South Texas. Lots of bunnies seen hanging out in the same greenhouse enclosure as these birds.

Will have to finish my description tomorrow ....

"The Helmeted Guineafowl (Numida meleagris) is the best known of the guineafowl bird family, Numididae, and the only member of the genus Numida. It breeds in Africa, mainly south of the Sahara, and has been widely introduced into the West Indies and southern France.... While guineafowl are native to Africa, the Helmeted Guineafowl has been domesticated and both feral and wild-type birds have been introduced elsewhere." From Wikipedia.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helmeted_guineafowl

“Frequently domesticated and included in exotic bird collections, the helmeted guineafowl is an easily recognizable bird and the most widespread game bird in Africa. In other parts of the world, feral and farm populations of these birds can be frequently seen and escapees are regular.”
