It was such a nice mor ing today here so I was enjoying the quiet laying in bed listening to the ducks mutter from their houses. I "thought" there was an off noise, but the dogs were not alerting so I took my time getting coffee and heading out for morning chores. As I head across the pool enclosure I see all of these very LARGE black birds in our side yard just outside where the geese are turned out at each day. At first I wondered why the buzzards were in our yard. Then a male lifted his head and I could clearly see we had a flock of black and white mascovy sitting there. They were muttering about, a bit confused, and not wanting me close. They did however figure out the lue feed buckets brought good things in them. We spent the day taking treats to them as they wanted nothing to do with coming inside the fenced area. They are toe punched, becoming more trusting, but still loose tonight. We have a large U shaped lake/pond so they have spent the day exploring it. Tonight three (male and 2 female) came back "close" and are roosting on the dock. Will continue to take feed out to them in hopes we can give the, a safer spot to sleep than out in the open. Will take the camera out too and get some photos. They come swimming and talking when I shake a feed bucket. Even if on the other end of the water.
