Anyone For Duck Shooting?

For the second time in a few days, I have come across Chestnut Teal with young. These were photographed at Sandford this morning, on a farm dam. They are wild birds. I don't recall seeing wild duck with young at this time of year before, and it's slap in the middle of a duck season that went ahead, despite being banned in other states. In my estimation, it went ahead purely for political reasons. Surely in this day and age, duck shooting should be a thing of the past. Go out with a camera instead perhaps!
