Well looking at some of the results from Victoria I suspect the saying should be modified to something like "if it moves and is near water then it is probably a duck", shoot it.

Yes that is obviously what I am suggesting. I wonder if you are asking in a
sarcastic way. It is easy for someone who knows the birds to say that a
species is distinctive. Yes they are. If you care. If you are experienced.
Every duck species has features on which it can be identified. There is
surely a huge range of skills in the shooting fraternity, just as there is
among us. There is the saying "if it looks like a duck and quacks like a
duck it is a duck" and that will be the level of interest to many people.

Philip, are you suggesting that shooters might have trouble recognising a
Pink-eared Duck? I would have thought there were few ducks that were so
distinctive. In Victoria at least, shooters have to pass an identification
