RAMSEY QUAKERS CRITTER

Critters Sunday


As you know I was supposed to be running a series of photos this coming week, Ramsey Beach Images. Of course the moment I suggest that it has consistently rained. Typical. Fortunately I always have a ready stock of recent beach bird images, such as this one. Now I think this is a Muscovy. Can you confirm or deny that out there in critter land?


Funny name Muscovy don't you think? Muscovy meaning coming from the Moscow area but these ducks are don't originate from there. It seems it could be the company that traded in the bird may have given the bird the name, rather than the area. Also Muscovy could be Musk Duck. Anyway lots of Muscovy related stuff for you at wiki here. 


As you've noticed a logo now appears on the image. Sorry folks but well if you've been reading this week you'll know about the problems. For those just passing through, lets just say keep an eye on your own blog and images. They are yours, not anyone else's. 


Take this blog, it's me Babooshka,Ramsey Daily Photo, http://dailyphotoisleofman.blogspot.com/
Anywhere else it's theft. 


It's been a long week. See you on faceboook see logo. For more critters see Misty Dawn to join or view others.

Yep Muscovy.

Elaine Dale said...

Excellent advice about protecting your work. I have to start doing the same. Insert a text box via PhotoShop I'm thinking?

Getting more snow here and it's only -10C after being -20C this morning. Can I send you some snow??

Hi! I couldn't tell you if it is a Muscovy or not. It is funny looking, but yet very pretty. I love the mow-hawk and the eye. Very intense. Lisa

Ming the Merciless said...

Actually he is a cute critter!! I have seen ducks with more warts than that.

Brad, Boston said...

LB,

You make my day. Never made you Brits with a humor but you are all that and a bag of doritos. How do you get these guys to show for you?

Babooshka said...

Babooshka didn't go to school with anyone named Christian. If I really did enlighten me before I come to you. You've seen the blog post.

Babooshka said...

Christian you lied just another feed to a dodgy site, and that's why you have been deleted.

Bruce said...

We have those ducks here in Florida too. Very cute when they're young, but as they grow up, not so cute.
Thanks for visiting my blog:)

Rocky Mtn. Girl said...

angela said...

So that's what a Muscovy looks like.
He's certainly got his beady eye on us..

Poopsie aka Blue said...

He's one red faced guy!
I hope ALL who have been giving you grief, are similarly affected.

Take care
Blue

Reader Wil said...

Yes it's a muscovy! Last year I saw a couple here in the neighbourhood and later the same bird in Australia too.

mamapippa said...

I don't know the name of the animal, but he/she's looking a little bit strange, but cute !

Mo said...

Not the most handsome duck. I prefer mine on a plate. I do remember my mother bringing them home live for my father to deal to. We had the great job of plucking them.
Hope the watermark helps with picture theft. Keep us posted.

Catwalk material.

I try to always have © info on every image that makes it's way out of my camera into the sometimes cold and cruel world. Too bad if a few don't want the intrusion ... don't forget about the IPTC data in the file info attached to the photo!

fishing guy said...

Babooshka: That is one ugly duck, I had heard of the ugly duckling but it grew up pretty.
I got 6" more of snow last night and you can have it.

Karen said...

chrissie said...

Today and tomorrow B. Batten down the hatches. It is an ugly Muscovy.

Facebook is offline trying to send you a message.

Zannnie said...

Babooshka said...

Zannie-i t's a gorgeous colour.

Chrissie- I can't get facebook either. Try Later.

BJ Roan said...

The beak looks like it could be painful. Handsome fella anyway.

Bibi said...

I had a pet duck (a drake) as a child, but not a Muscovy. His name was Hankie, and he followed me everywhere. Never knew ducks could be so affectionate either.

karl said...

cool.

Teena in Toronto said...

What a cool bird!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Misty Dawn said...

That's a really neat looking duck... and yes, a neat name too! I always enjoy your posts, and it really upsets me that someone would steal from you!

storyteller said...

Interesting bird ... love the head shot and close up of the beak!
Hugs and blessings,
