I'm not specialist, it seems Ducks... I know better the "Le magret de
canard" or "Canard ? l'Orange", excellent kitchen in the Tarek's Region, a
good food for a Sunday!

I like the second picture the best

Saludos cordiales

Three PADs for yesterday, mainly because it is a logical sequence. I am also
cross-posting to the LUG because there are some extremely knowledgeable
people there, and I need some advice.

There are some ducks(?) or geese(?) that have taken up residence nearby. As
a result, we often find this in our pool (this one was yesterday afternoon):

Looks cute, except that they shit in the pool, which is a major nuisance. So
I let the dog out or scare them off myself. They usually go reluctantly,
first up onto the garden wall:

And then finally they f**k off:

So now I have some questions for the birders here:
- what is this species?
- is it edible?
- is there something we can to scare them off when we are not at home? Is
there any particular plant or smell that they hate?
