[Mystery bird] Christmas Duck, Anas noellus, photographed in a kitchen on the 13th floor of an apartment building in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Unlike most mystery birds, this individual came with a label indicating that it originated in France. [I might identify this bird for you in 48 hours]
Please name at least one field mark that supports your identification.
Yes, I did roast this duck a little longer, after so rudely slicing into the leg like that.
NOTE: I have lived without eating meat for most of my life and plan to continue doing so in the future. However, considering that this is the first Christmas (or holiday) I’ve celebrated without spending all day running around on the subways in pursuit of minimal sum of money in exchange for scooping cat shit from a litter box, I just wanted to .. celebrate. Because domestic house cat meat is not as tasty as duck meat, my choice is obvious.
