Ugly bird at Toogood pond

We went to Toogood pond last evening, and saw the ugly bird again. This time, the bird joined a group of Canadian goose families. So it did not look that lonely as last time.

I was trying to figure out what species is the bird, but failed. It is a black bird with some white blocks, the size of a Canadian goose but much fatter. I doubt it could fly with the weight. The head looks like a turkey, but with its webbed feet, it shouldn’t be. When we approached it, the ugly bird started to drag it body towards us, wagging its fat tail like a dog.

I know this is coming 2 years later, but I was just at the pond today and saw the bird. A lady came to feed it and said she comes to feed this bird everyday for 30 years. His name is Ralph. And the white one I believe is Alice (don't know if you've seen it...)

Apparently the bird is a Moscovy Duck. I posted a picture that I took at Toogood of one with black colouring on flickr and another flickr member said it was a Moscovy Duck. I thought for sure the bird had to be some type of turkey!

Good to know! I've never seen the white one though.
