Wood Duck Banding

Closeup photo of biologist putting a metal band on a wood duck's leg

We put leg bands on wood ducks and other waterfowl to help collect valuable information on population dynamics. Band return data can tell biologists about the survival and dispersal rates of a particular species. This information then helps managers make important decisions on regulations and habitat management.
