Muscovy red for a gray day

I’m not complaining about the weather, but we have had a longer than usual string of gray, dreary days. This week’s photo offers a pop of color to go along with all that gray.

I believe this is a feral Muscovy duck (though I’m open to other suggestions). Not wild, but feral. It’s a distinction birding experts make about Muscovy ducks.

I love the play of white and gray feathers and white and gray streaks in the rock, but mostly I love the bright red of the duck’s beak and eye area.

What’s your favorite pop of color when you need a break from gray days?
