In the early spring of 1961, I was approached by several residents of Livingston who told me they had seen large and unusual birds perched on their chimneys or those of their neighbors. A neighbor of mine said the ones on his chimney looked like a pair of ducks, and he could see the color red Knowing that there is a domestic duck with red on the head and that it can fly like a wild duck, also that there are some of these around Livingston. I concluded that this was what was being seen.
