Not-so-wild birds of Town Lake

Swans and cygnets. Austin's Town Lake has had a self-reproducing mute swan population for many years

Mallard duck

A small boy was ineffectually throwing sticks at the duck as the boy's father looked on. The duck investigated each stick, apparently hoping it was a crust of bread. The ducks get fed a lot. Sticks would be the down side of this.
