    isnt it a little late to be migrating? I have three Mallards that flew off today. They were laid and hatched in my backyard this past June. they have plenty of food and water given to them every day so im just confused as to why they would fly off right now

    They may come back, they could just be testing their wings out, Do you have any bodies of water close by? Ducks love to fly

    Just to report they have not come back yet. And yes there are several ponds in the area but no one has seen any of them
