From caption on back of photograph: "You can't fool the ducks at Lake Merritt. No matter what the opening date of the duck season, they start their hegira to the lake sanctuary two days in advance and remain until after the hunters guns have ceased firing. Albert Thomas, who has [torn] years, is shown here feeding a small [torn] of birds that have arrived during [torn]." A large flight of ducks in Lake Merritt take to the air. Even more ducks remain in the water behind them. A few white geese in the foreground seem less inclined to fly, though a single goose does take off along with the ducks. A single man stands at the far proper right watching the ducks. Several apartment buildings are visible along the shore of Lake Merritt in the background.
