Muscovy Duck Appearance
Caruncles are a major distinguishing Muscovy duck characteristic. Usually only present on males, caruncles are fleshy, red, warty bumps that cover the area around the eyes and extend to the base of the bill. Muscovy ducks weigh anywhere between 10 and 15 pounds (4 and 7 kg), and males are typically larger than females. They may appear solid white, solid black, or mottled, with males featuring an iridescent green or purple sheen to their feathers, unlike females of the species. They also have long, flat tails and large claws.
Trapping and Removal
Muscovy ducks are wild animals that can carry fatal diseases. Untrained individuals should not attempt to trap or remove the ducks from public or private spaces under any circumstances. Hire a Animal Rangers professional that is familiar with how to properly handle the removal of these birds.
Muscovy Duck Damage
Muscovy duck populations are growing rapidly in Florida. Their presence in public parks can be dangerous to humans; for example, the consequences of overfeeding the ducks. They will chase and attempt to bite people at random. Additionally, Muscovies pose several health threats. For example, their droppings often get into water supplies and seriously affect the quality. Furthermore, Muscovy ducks are known carriers of the avian influenza virus, which can be fatal to both the ducks and humans who contract the disease.
