@Sacchan a lot of people mistake him for a carrion crow! A thread of them went viral on twitter, it was doing my head in after a day and people kept trying to correct me lmao
They're the same size as large mallard ducks, too
@sophia yeah that’s exactly what I would mistakenly think it was if I saw it around here, unless it was kind enough to say something! Which means I very much could have unwittingly seen one/many
@Sacchan The first week we saw the mum about we thought she was a crow and paid little attention to detail, but when the fledglings appeared it was a bit more obvious. A crowd of them towering over the ducks was a bit imposing
