TEXAS CITY, Texas - For about 40 years, the ducks at College of the Mainland have been a fixture. The duck is the community college s mascot for its intramural sport and debate teams, the waterfowl draw children to the pond in front of the student center to feed them, and the college bookstore sells T-shirts and other items featuring the COM ducks.

Now, the COM ducks have their own Facebook page. Started by College of the Mainland Police Officer Sylvia Chapa, the social media page College Duck Whisperer is more than just a collection of nice photos of the ducks. It s also an educational tool.

Chapa launched the page Feb. 1, which has a small flock of 82 followers, mostly students and staff at the college. Chapa gives reports on COM duck-related issues.
