How is it a wild bird if there are no native birds? Don't beat me up just a question.

I don't think he called it a wild bird, only that is was shot in the wild. I could be wrong though.

He said "In the wild" but even if he said the bird "was wild" that would still be accurate. Just because it's not native does not mean it's not wild.

Shot in Wise County

For the record, this bird came in by himself and not with any wood ducks, he had also been spotted a week ago on local reservoir North of Fort Worth. It could also be two entirely different ducks, but I doubt it, or I think it would be highly unlikely.

It would be an escapee from someones pond or aviary. Couple years ago on a public lake I killed a greylag that had been flying with some resident canadas. Never know what you might find out flying free near the metromess. That Mandarin was not a cheap one.
