We saw this duck over the weekend on the Ararat River Greenway in Mount Airy, N.C. She/he was a little leery of us, but didn’t fly off or waddle away.
Do you know what she/he is? I think she’s a muscovy.
I like this greenway, though it can get pretty busy. But that’s a good thing! It’s good to see the Mount Airy (N.C.) community using the park facilities and getting some exercise. Just as many people use this trail as they do the Emily B. Taylor Greenway.
Besides a paved trail, which is currently over 2 miles, residents can fish, tube and canoe on the Ararat River. There’s also a playground, skate park and open green space for picnics and ball games.
Here’s some photos from the day’s trip:

|I love taking photos of water. I loved how the later afternoon sun shone on the river.|
