Wild Fowl Decoys is an art reference book by American collector Joel Barber, first published in 1934 by The Derrydale Press.

This heavily illustrated book aimed to be a comprehensive guide to the carved wooden duck decoy. Used by early American waterfowl hunters, this type of decoy was promoted by the author as a form of folk art. The book is considered by art historians to be the first on the subject, and was a bible to decoy collectors throughout the 20th century.

Although decoys were initially created for practical use, they are now prime examples of American folk art. The earliest known decoys, made and used by Native Americans, are now on display at the National Museum of the American Indian. Wild Fowl Decoys was the first book on decoys and continues to be a useful resource to this day. As folk art gains popularity and hunting continues to be a popular sport, Barber's book remains an invaluable reference tool.
