Last Wednesday, 13 June, the Coalition Against Duck Shooting had its final 
display of dead birds outside the offices of the Department of Primary 
Industries, Melbourne. These were the birds displayed.

Protected species:
Crested Pigeon (2)
Australian Pelican
Raven spp 
Black Swan
Eurasian Coot 
Welcome Swallow
Whistling Kite
Dusky Moorhen (juvenile)

Game species:
Australian Shelduck
Pacific Black Duck (2)

Grey Teal (7)
Pink-eared Duck (10)

Rescuers went to wetlands near Lake Buloke this weekend (June16/17) to look for 
any wounded birds, and to look for evidence of shooting after the season's 
close (June 11).
