The Puddle Ducks

Record #:
In this WILDLIFE IN NORTH CAROLINA series about wildlife species in the state, Amundson describes puddle ducks, so named because \"they habitually feed in shallow water by dabbling and tipping up their tails with their heads submerged so that only the posterior shows above the water.\" A large number either visit or reside in North Carolina, including the shoveler, gadwall, and baldpate. Amundson discusses the puddle duck's history, characteristics, range and distribution, breeding and food habits, and management.
