Unsolicited Duck Pic

Not really. We mostly try to leave them be. Don't want to scare them. Sometimes the girls will chase away an annoying pūkeko, though.

We've really only got the water of leith in Dunedin and the Botanic Gardens both of which attract ducks. Free food at the gardens to feed them in little packets.

Went on the great duck quest today. Nice spring day so went and had a look at one of our local gardens in town.

They've partly restored native bush and a remnant of precolonial NZ.

Information centre had free packets of grain to feed them. Pigeons also saying hi. Everyone else had the same idea and they weren't that interested in eating probably full up.
