At Mascouten Park, where Happy Hollow Creek runs into the Wabash River.  This muscovy duck  (Cairina moschata) swam across the Wabash to the mudflat on the shore.  Duck didn't pay any attention to me.

Duck went straight to the amaranth and started gobbling it up.

I'm pretty sure I saw that same duck this morning on my ride to work on the Heritage Trail. I had to come to a complete stop on my bike and wait for him to get across the path.
