I have a strange bird that has been living at my house for about a month. S/He looks like something that might better live in a pond or lake instead of in a desert location. Does anyone know what s/he is? THANKS!

I think you are right. I didn't look at the legs.

I've never even heard of that one! Do they have long, skinny legs?
