These ducks weren't too interested in having their picture taken.

Probably because you insulted those Egyptian Geese by calling them "ducks"....
I just knew they weren't any kind of duck I'd ever seen before. I wonder how they ended up there.

"Egyptian geese have been imported from their native home as decorative birds. Those that have escaped private ponds or aviaries have established hardy feral populations that seem to be growing in numbers"

Lots of feral, invasive birds have been introduced and thrive in the USA. Starlings, English Sparrow and Monk Parakeets are just a few examples...
Not all those who wander are lost.
