That is so cool they definitely know where home is.

They'll probably keep coming back until they are ready to start a family. Then, they should go off and establish their own territories if they're like other shelducks. It's strange that some shelduck species are called geese. Well, actually, I guess most people consider them something in between, not really a shelduck and not really a goose.

Yeah there like an in between. Just how like some people think Muscovy ducks are an in between of a duck and a goose when really they're just them XD
