THE ducks and geese of Wollundry Lagoon are in the spotlight amid a call for a crossing on Forsyth Street to help the frequent road users safely cross to the other side.
Wagga City Council has been called to explore any options that might alert drivers to ducks and geese that can be found crossing the street up to four times a day.
Ray Ray's Diner owner Jeanette Saxvik said the ducks have "no road sense" and there is a high risk that drivers will hit them.
Ms Saxvik said the council should put markings on the road and install clearer signs that will make unaware drivers cautious of the animals crossing.
"Not many people slow down because the signage isn't good ... and people from out of town have no idea," she said.
"People need to be more aware of the fact that the ducks and geese do actually live there and they have the right to wander around."
At Monday night's Wagga council meeting, Councillor Paul Funnell made the request that staff consider a duck crossing on Forsyth Street in the vicinity of Ray Ray's Diner and Wollundry Lagoon.

Cr Funnell said it is a dangerous area where an accident is waiting to a happen. He said the area needs a big sign that warns drivers passing by.
"There are so many near misses there - having had a few myself," he said.
"It is a multiple lane road and a car will pull up to let the geese cross, which I think is fantastic, but what happens is the driver on the inside lane ... do not know why they stopped and the geese steps out and the car slams their brakes on and the car behind rams up the back."
