Masked Duek - (Mrs. Bessie Reid, Silsbee) I have several times seen the Masked Duck in the lower Rio Grande Valley, Thirty years ago my son and I camped not far from Brownsville near a resaca where we hoped to see many early morning bird visitors as well as night-prowling reptiles. A female Masked Duek with several young was putting up a fight against a swimming reptile trying to land on a wee mud- lump islet, knee high in coarse grass. Rattlesnakes are said to be allergic to water but the attacker was certainly a rattler; and he couldn't have got there except by swimming twenty-five or thirty feet. We chunked mud lumps at the eombattants and hit the snake. He pulled into the grass which the duck forsook for a likely but more distant haven, trailed by her half dozen young.
