Double breeding event likely.

Breeding is in full swing and hunters can expect more birds on the wing next year

The FGA membership have been reporting from across the state the fantastic reversal in habitat conditions. FGA branch nesting box programs are no show the rewards for the effort. Waterfowl have responded to the conditions taking advantage of the abundant resources for there broods. This clutch of Chestnut teal down Gippsland for example.


The nest box program provides valuable nesting sites for waterfowl and other species such as parrots.


The Grey teal are getting into it though I'm not sure the Chestnut Drake can handle two girl friends.


It's been reported that already one in three boxes are in use this will only increase in the coming months.


Hunters thrive on abundance, to all the volunteers maintaining their boxes keep up the good work.
