Having been fooled by decoys in the past, I can now spot them, at least usually, sometimes informed by the fact that there's only one (if a very flock-y species), and it's in a place handy for folks to see (to lure flocks so folks can see them, too). Not to mention very, very still. =)

This is a classic example. Note flock circling.

Flock still circling (out of view), deciding to land.
The decoy waits, advertising the delightful, suitable, safe nature of that particular location.

Click on this one, and tell me what I was then thinking.




  1. Is hunting not getting a little high tech? I guess the decoys can be used for hunting with a camera or in biology for study, though.
