We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Muscovy duck breeds in the Ibera Marshes although it is rarely seen. It has a nervous disposition like many ducks in Argentina and perches in trees.
It is a large duck of around 65cm (female) and 55cm (male), predominantly black with a white wing spot which is noticeable in flight. The male has red skin around the eye and has a small crest.
