    They may nest nearby. Aside from the pool are there any ponds/lakes nearby?

      Yes, there is a lake down the road, a river across the street and several ponds out in the back field. She laid 3 eggs under the pear tree one year but after a few weeks abandoned them.

          We used to get a couple a few years back, the male was very tame and would eat out of your fingers.
          I was amazed at the plumage, such vibrant colours and define lines they looked like they had been airbrushed.

          People think peacock have nice plumage but they are nowhere as defined as the duck.

          As regards cooking it's the same as any other meal. Nip down the pub, read the menu, find duck and order it, job done and no washing up.

              No that is a urban legend put about by Budweiser who have to freeze their drink [ can't call it beer ] to disguise the taste it has at room temperature.

              True beer can be drunk at cool temperatures and doesn't need to be chilled.

              What makes the Lucas joke even better is that a few years ago Lucas industries were split up, Lucas Aerospace is now part of Airbus and the Lucas Automotive was was sold off to America.

              So it could even be part of Maytag now

                If you feed them they'll always come back.

                If you cook them the breast should be medium rare.

                  While I will agree that Budweiser is not beer (what it is said to resemble comes from horses) on a hot MidWestern afternoon after mowing the greensward* the idea of a glass of Porter or Stout just doesn't cut it. In times like that I think I'll have a Leinenkugels myself

                    Our city code has a provision for killing animals that are doing damage to plants or property. I'm going to use it to eat a rabbit that seems to fancy our yard (and the mrs flowers). Only protected species are exempt from the land owner's wishes of live or dead removal.

                    Of course air guns are still prohibited unless you have a permitted "range" (I'm in the process of getting one designated), but you can use archery without restriction.

                      That board in the first photo------cut off about 18" of it, clean and skin the ducks, place the ducks on the board and place in the oven at 350° for an hour, throw away the ducks and eat the board.

                        If you do cook them, grits or oats works reasonably well to soak up the grease. A towel works well to wipe the grease off your lips but if you eat with your fingers you may want to wear the nitril gloves.

                        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                            Iv managed to hit squirls with my bow before at 40'+..
                            The problem is they run when they hear the bow release, and run a few feet before the arrows get to them (with a small, slower bow)

                            The trick is to just wait untill they see you and start running, then you can effectively lead them and shoot where they plan to be :P

                            It also helps that for most feeding areas, 90% of squirls will pick one of two directions to escape off in (the nearest two trees somewhat far apart typicly)

                              That might go for geese, but wild mallard, cooked so that the breast meat is still pink, tastes like lean beef.

                              We breast out our Geese and soak the breasts in either brine or whole milk overnight and then cook em on the grill.
