Thanksgiving Refugee?

During Canada's long Thanksgiving Weekend a few weeks ago I went out to Esquimalt Lagoon and was surprised to see this bird, a domestic Muscovy Duck, strolling among the seagulls and swans at this bird sanctuary. Now I figure that he got wind of those meaningful glances and remarks about his plumpness and size that he overheard in the farmyard and decided that he'd skip Thanksgiving at home and spend it in a place where he could keep his feathers on.

You guys don't make turkey for your thanksgiving dinner?

One wonders if he can make do in the outside world or if he ends up an easy meal for a predator.
