Hello, some more supporting evidence that your masked ducks are wild just in
as texas reports one this week.  This species often can be found in small
numbers in texas after wet conditions in mexico.  I am not sure if droughts
do the same thing.  I suspect this species could establish itself as a NA
breeder if there  were a few consecutive wet years although there are
several other factors also.

Are your birds doing anything that indicates potential breeding and how many
acres is this area?
