Is there anyone in the Austin TX area that rescues waterfowl? My SO and I were out driving around yesterday and we came across a flock with mostly white and brown chinese ganders, as well as a few mixed breeds and one solitary duck in a public park along the river not too far from here. They are obviously drop-offs, and have ended up congregating there for safety, as well as for food. The flock is about 30 strong, and at least 20 are ganders, with most of them being whites or browns. They may not be a problem right now, but once mating season starts, they will be, due to the bad ratio of ganders to geese. I suspect that will be just about the time the city loses patience with them and gets rid of them. I would love to be able to trap them and take them to my property about 10 miles away, but caring for a flock that big and unbalanced is way beyond my capabilities, as well as the patience of my neighbors. Likely they need someone who already has a large flock with a lot of females, or have the time and the ability to place them in foster or permanent homes. I have a pair of Chinese whites already, and would love to have more, but a whole goose farm's worth is just too much. I really don't want to see anything bad happen to these guys so any info for the Austin area would be greatly appreciated. I am going to check up on them today and see if if I can get some pics of the flock. Yesterday they were hanging out on a sand bar about 50' from shore, probably to stay away from the people picnicking in the park, but the park should be empty today and they should be on land grazing. I don't figure on them being too aggressive, so I'll just wade in with some feed and a camera and see what I can find out.
