Naively carved wood wildfowl hunting decoy. It is quite rare to find a decoy made to represent this particular breed of duck. The shoveler duck has a characteristic 'spatula' shaped bill, which they use to sift insects and plant matter from the water. They are usually found on estuaries and marshes.


These decoys are primitve in both construction and in decoration, but the carver has gone to the trouble of carving the 'spatulate' bill.
