From caption on back of photograph: "This picture demonstrates that ducks are smart. Thousands made their home in Lake Merritt and on the shores of Lakeside Park as they fled from shooting areas to be fed daily by the City of Oakland and citizens. This duck pond, provided by Oakland, is known over the world." Thousands of ducks congegrate around the shore of Lake Merritt. There are so many ducks present that they cover up most of the ground, but scattered feed is visible in the few patches of empty ground. Many of the ducks are taking advantage of the feed and eating it. In the background more ducks float on the surface of Lake Merritt and fly towards the feeding frenzy.
