Decoys Evidently Work

Fishfeeding rings are situated at the deep end of our pond.  They’re like giant hula hoops.  The idea is you throw pelletized fish food into the rings.  It floats on top of the water and the fish learn to eat there.  It’s supposed to become their hangout place and are therefore make them easy to catch.  The rings came with the farm, we don’t use them.  We just throw fish food off of the dock.  The rings have captured a freefloating duck decoy one of our friends launched on our pond.  We get an occasional duck visitor to the pond.  They don’t stay long, I guess they’re just passing through.  This little visitor on the left found his fake friend on the right.  How disappointing it must have been.
