Sourland and the Princess just got back from a riverboat trip from Amsterdam to Brussels. Canals, ditches, creeks and rivers - all filled with waterfowl. Saw every color possible of mallard crosses from dilutes to normal. Many pairs of Egyptian geese. A nesting pair of Canada geese and of course many native ducks and geese. The odd trio was a Mandarin hen, wood duck drake, and mallard drake traveling together. I wonder what their story was? Released by or escaped from someone? They were definately their own 'mini flock' as I saw them over the course of several days????
