In the past some have set down on the pond for a quick rest now and then but we've never had any stay as long as these have.
Unlike the wild Mallard ducks we frequently have, these guys don't seem the least bit interested in scattered grain. They are grazing machines chowing down almost constantly on the thick grass still ample in the pasture.
I'm pretty sure they must be stoking up for the flight south and we'll wake up some morning soon to see them gone. We'll miss them. Our domestic geese? Probably not so much. They've tolerated the visitors but will occasionally give them a half-hearted, hissing charge so they know who owns the place.
