Bird ID?

There were two of these birds behind my parent's house today. The look like a goose crossed with a duck. Anybody seen one of these?

I can't find any North American ducks that look like them...

EDIT: After looking at you pic some more, I don't think I've seen one of them. It looks less and less like the one I saw every time I look at it...
Same here. I am lost. Possibly Asian ducks.

I didn't really hear them call, but just making a few noises as they ate grass. Sounded more to me like a small ross' goose.

Well, if you aren't going to eat them, might as well see if anyone is missing them. Sounds like they don't have a chance against a coyote, amazed that they're still alive.
