Hi Greg! These showed up on one of the neighbor lakes. Late I went by and they were gone again. I don´t know if they initially were on captivity but now for sure they seem to be free :-)

Thanks John, Neil and the others..we were lucky to see this couple. Many types of ducks and geese are occasional visitors of these ponds and then they migrate somewhere else. I hope this couple stays to breed. I would love to see their babies :-)

Thanks Daniela! I was lucky they were a couple and closely followed each other. I would love to see them with babies one day :-)

Beautiful spotting! Only few times you can see the female, the male is the most photographed.
