Pekin and Muscovy Ducks welcome spring in King

 Photos by BarrytheBirder

The three Pekin and three Muscovy Ducks at Pine Farms Orchard, on the 16th Sideroad, between Keele and Jane Streets, finally were let out of their pens to greet spring this week.   It was bright and chilly but the ducks seemed content to just find their favourite spots and soak up some of the sunny rays.   Wikipedia footnote: The American Pekin Duck, also known as the Peking, White Pekin, Pekin, and Long Island Duck, is the most popular breed of domestic duck in North America.   It originated from the Mallard in China,and is now distributed in many countries, and in all the continents except Antarctica.
