I believe they are wild, we’re to far out for drop offs, they started out in a small field between house and chicken barn and horse barn, now they have moved into the backyard but I need them to get out of backyard so my dogs can go out lol
I would venture to guess they flew in. saw your flock of birds and decided it looked like friendly company and good habitat.
they also kind of look like mallards although mallards usually have more brown feathers along with grey and black, but both have the black or dark line through the eyes
Also I’ve been looking at lots of photos and I agree with white fronted or the lesser white fronted.and I just discovered the white fronted goose is one of the first to be seen in fall on Washington coast lines from late aug till mid Oct. so possibly mystery solved. I’m 5 miles as a bird flies from the Pacific Ocean. Now I want to find which they are lessor the smaller or normal. I really hope they continue on migration for safety reasons. We moved here 6 years ago and a wild duck moved in with us lol we named her wayward and she stayed for 6 years very happy and spoiled she was like a little dog. Sadly 2 weeks ago something got her I was heart broken, and now worry about these 2 over night
You frighten me terribly. I would like to go home now. Here, take this tiny ad:
