AUTHORS: Ciara McCarty, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources

ABSTRACT: As the second most harvested duck in the state, Wood ducks provide recreational hunting opportunity and funding for conservation through the purchase of hunting licenses. It is important for managers to understand the movement patterns of waterfowl in order to properly manage populations and conserve habitat to maintain a healthy population. There are no formal reports of where birds produced in the state migrate to and no way to test significant factors that drive migration. This project will utilize waterfowl banding data over the last 20 years to help describe some of the connections between production and harvest areas.
