Birds of the Water Wood & Waste
The Grey Duck
The Grey Duck.
Although the Grey Duck on Tutira barely holds its own as a New Zealand species it is safe. All waters preserved as sanctuaries, however much in the world, however near towns and centres of population, are thronged with grey duck during the shooting season. Besides thus trusting their friends they have become more cautious of their enemies; certainly the Grey Duck is a wilder bird than he was forty years ago.
