Last fall sold off the extra 6 pairs of Mandarin ducks. By spring a pair returned and last week another pair with 13 fledglings returned. No one has called about missing ducks; unfortunately I kept no record of who bought them. The four adults have our ID closed bands on their legs so I am positive they were born here and are 2008 birds. It amazes me that they have returned for it was my understanding that they would not stay around if they were alowed to free range. Could it be because they were born and raised here that they returned? Has anyone had this happen?
