Cairina moschata is monotypic and distributed in much of C and S America.
Figure 1. This seems to be a male Cairina moschata, and I conclude from the absence of scattered white in the plumage that it is probably not domesticated (Gwynne et al. 2010). I saw it on a large reservoir, where hunting was forbidden, and where many other waterbirds, including Cocoi Heron and Osprey, could also be seen.To top of page
