Waterfowl on the Move


Author(s):
Abstract:
Migratory waterfowl have wintered in North Carolina over the centuries. Following some mysterious, invisible pathway through the sky, the birds fly in from the Dakotas, Canada, and far beyond the Artic Circle. Hester describes some of these autumnal visitors, including the mallard, wood duck, northern pintail, American wigeon, and tundra swan.
