Definitely a Muscovy Duck.
Thanks Everyone for the id! First chocolate one I have ever seen! And thanks Gerardo.
Definitely a domestic Muscovy (Cairina moschata). There are various breeds and colors of domestic Muscovy Ducks (they even go as far as Lavender and Chocolate). Wildtype breeds are very hard to find in America.
Looks like a hybrid between a domestic and wild type Muscovy Duck. (Domestics are pure white
Hm...must be a Muscovy duck..with such a red face
This looks like either a domestic or feral Muscovy Duck (Cairina moschata)
Very nice photos!
