orange billed duck

by Cheryl Shine
(Houston)

About 4 years ago some brown ducks with orange bills and orange feet came and nested in my tree. I had never seen them before. They come back every year and now there are about 30 of them. I can't find them in any book. They don't quack they squeak at eack other. They have a white strip on their wings. And are very loud. I would like to make nesting places for them but I have no idea what they like; they fight over my one hole in my tree.

Two showed up in my yard today. Never saw them before. They ate seed under my bird feeder and squeezed all day!
