Duck shooting season is fast approaching. I hate it. These ducks are so defenceless. They were in an area that can be seen from the road and that makes them an obvious target when the season opens. Poor little things stand no chance.
Flying off interstate would be a better idea.
Instead they’re hanging around, even perching in trees, oblivious.
Thanks Audrey for this comment. The top two ducks are Australian Grey Teal, below is a Pacific Black Duck. I hope they won’t get blown away- soon to be fair game: Duck Season open – 8am on Wednesday 26 May 2021-Season close – 30 minutes after sunset on Monday 14 June 2021. Daily bag limit of five game ducks per day for the entire season.
