The turkey duck is a small, white quacking bird found in the Earth Kingdom. It roams around the streets of Makapu Village and can also be found in Ba Sing Se. The turkey duck is generally very friendly, but will not hesitate to peck if provoked.
The turkey duck has two talons, two wings, a yellow bill, and a stubby fan-shaped tail. Besides the gray feathers that encircle both its eyes, the only color on the duck is a strip of red wattle around its bill. The turkey duck has a loud, distinctive warble.
As the name implies, this animal is a cross between a duck and a turkey. Duck is the umbrella term for the common water fowl, which includes geese and swans. A turkey is a large bird in the genus Meleagris.
The many different breeds and species of duck make it nearly impossible to make a direct correlation with the duck seen in Makapu Village, although the red skin over its bill, which is very similar to that of the turkey from which the bird takes it name, also resembles the skin over the bill of the Muscovy Duck.
