Description

Waterfowl are not only one of the most attractive groups of birds, but they are also some of the best to begin to identify as they are all color-coded. Male ducks may be showy, but the females are often quite subdued and difficult to differentiate. Begin with a workshop led by Harry Fuller on waterfowl identification and then head into the field to put your skills to use! Bring lunch, water, binoculars, and a scope (if you have one), and wear layered clothing for winter wear.
