Had to empty the feeder to fix the funnel and spilled a bunch of corn. Had these start showing up, are these ducks?

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck then it's a pigeon

Thanks. They have shown up a couple different days, this feeder isn't super close to water so I'm a little surprised.

Black bellies are a perching duck. They behave a little different from the normal ducks you see around here.

Weird. They normally appear in May -- migrating up from Brazil. I would have thought they would be gone down south by now.

We never have ducks this early in San Saba county, plus we have almost zero water in the tanks so I have no idea what they are doing here.

Some donít migrate much. I know of several groups released by a buddy of mine that he raised. I see them from time to time in the Tim Top area.

As already responded, I know them as whistling tree ducks. The whistle is unmistakable when flying into your set, dumber than dumb and they are delicious.
