Liam, that looks a bit like a juvenile (shorter beak). Our Musk Ducks finally have a chick so I have been watching them a lot lately... I still need to find time to upload my photos to CNM! Might be worth going back to check for the female parent.

Thanks for the info, we often head out that way so might go back sometime soon, never seen a musk chick, I assume they’re very cute though
