I have a weekend home in upstate NY. On the property is a large wetland. The water is several feet deep, slow moving,in middle of summer gets very sluggish. I would love to have waterfowl, but because I am only there a few days a month domesticated birds are out. I have had the house for about 10 years, in all that time only once have I had wild ducks visit! For 3 weekends in a row I would see them on the water. Then one weekend they where gone. Ny. state has a big problem with over population of Canada geese. Plans are talked about culling some of the birds. The geese are everywhere, yet I have never seen one at my house. The corn fields 1/4 mile away are loaded with geese. What could be some of the things stopping geese from using my pond?
