    Curmudgeon alert!

    Yup. Who can resist a handful of ducklings?

    But those (west) Florida birds appear to be Muscovies, not real ducks. Muscovies (locally known as COOTS since we don’t have real coots) are pests. They’re as welcome in south Florida as pigeons are in Cincinnati. Like many other species, including ours, they’re cute when they’re young.

    Problem is– they grow up. What a beautiful sight is a flight of geese in the fall, right? Ask any owner of a new car which has been overflown by a flock of geese how beautiful they are. Muscovies are everywhere there’s fresh water but not enough alligators to control them. They’re NOT good to eat, cats won’t touch them and they sh_t everywhere. They’re not even pretty to look at:

    Think kudzu with feathers. And, of course, they have their own envirowacko affinity groups, too.

    End of rant.

    All this to save some ducks, but windmill power generators chopping up eagles and condors is OK?
