Identifying age, sex and moult in Victorian game waterfowl

This field guide equips the waterfowl hunter with information to assist them in identifying the age, sex and moulting stages in harvested game ducks. This information can provide insight into a population's productivity, current status and recruitment from season to season. All waterfowl hunters in Victoria must be competent in identifying different waterbird species. However, this guide is not intended to educate hunters on species identification, but rather to illustrate methods of determining age, sex and moult.
