Ducks at a Distance ID Guide

Ducks at a Distance, A Waterfowl Identification Guide

By Bob Hines, Department of the Interior, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Scoping a fast-flying flock of ducks from 500 yards, in the mist, in bad light. Been there before, right? These aren't the most conducive conditions in which to make a positive identification of species. This USGS site by Bob Hines offers logical and helpful pointers to help sort out ducks at a distance. Hone your duck identification skills by selecting the flock of bufflehead, above, or point your browsers to http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/tools/duckdist/duckdist.htm.
