If ducks or geese are congregating at or near your property, check to be sure that none of your neighbors are feeding them. The Scottsdale Ranch Rules state: 'Feeding waterfowl is not permitted on any easement area or any property maintained by SRCA or an ancillary association.
There are products approved by the EPA to repel ducks and geese. Some of them are 'ReJex-It', 'Goose Chase' and 'Bird Shield'. There are numerous distributors, so you can do a search for 'goose control' on any search engine such as Yahoo!. Some sites to try are http://www.bird-x.com, http://www.floormat.com and http://www.bsrc.com

Article IV, Section 2(b) of the CC&Rs state: 'No animal, bird, fowl, poultry or livestock, other than a reasonable number of generally recognized house or yard pets, shall be maintained on any Lot or Parcel and then only if they are kept, bred or raised thereon solely as domestic pets and not for commercial purposes. No animal, bird, fowl, poultry, or livestock shall be allowed to make an unreasonable amount of noise or to become a nuisance... Upon the written request of any Member or Resident, the Board shall conclusively determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, whether, for the purposes of this Section, a particular animal, bird, fowl, poultry, or livestock is a generally recognized house or yard pet, whether such a pet is a nuisance, or whether the number of animals or birds on any such property is reasonable. Any decision rendered by the Board shall be enforceable in the same manner as other restrictions contained herein.'
The Scottsdale Ranch Rules state: 'Upon the written request of any member, the Board shall conclusively determine it its sole and absolute discretion whether such a pet is a nuisance. To assist the Board in making this determination, we require that the member submitting the request for determination to keep a log for two (2) weeks of every time the animal barks, and to have another neighbor keep track to verify this information. It would also be beneficial to have a tape of the barking and the time at which it occurs. A recording of every instance of barking is not required, but a tape would be helpful to determine the volume and consistency of the barking. The Association is not required to bring legal action on this matter, however, should the matter go to court, the member submitting the complaint would be required to testify.'
The City of Scottsdale has a free mediation service that is available to residents of Scottsdale. They have been quite successful in dealing with barking dog issues. For further information, please contact Molly Edwards, Mediation Coordinator at 480-312-4304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
