Friday Creature

I took this photo less than an hour ago. It's a pretty, gloomy, ominous day out there, with a spectacular black and gray sky, so as I worked my way home a little while ago, I swung through downtown and past the waterfront, looking for photo ops. I didn't expect to find a friday creature in such and urban setting, but there he/she was looking like nothing I've ever seen before. This is a goose-like creature, but I don't know if it's a particular breed or maybe some sort of leucistic or mutant bird.

Anyway, have a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I can't believe we're already into October! If you're interested, many other creatures are boarding the ark as we speak!

Might it be a Muscovy Duck, or a hybrid of one?

Could be a hybid -- the beak is a bit small for a muscovy, isn't it?
