Given their choice, where do the sleep? On the ground or in the trees. There is no water close by. I'm sure they will be gone as soon as they are full or the grasshoppers are gone. The turkeys may hang around awhile, I know they like the trees.

The Canadian Geese that come through my area always sleep on the ground close to water usually. They also have a fondness for islands in ponds or lakes.

I bet there might be some variance on ducks based on breed. I see a lot more geese than ducks, but the ducks that have stayed on our pond sleep on the island as well.

For wild ducks, it depends. Mallards sleep on the ground or on the water - they like islands. A lot of New World ducks are perching ducks - they sleep in trees. Wood ducks come to mind.
