Purchase a Federal Duck Stamp Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps, commonly known as “Duck
Stamps,” are pictorial stamps produced by the U.S. Postal Service for the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service. They were originally created in 1934 as the
federal licenses required for hunting migratory waterfowl. Today, Federal Duck
Stamps are a vital tool for wetland conservation. Ninety-eight cents out of
every dollar generated by the sales of Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or
lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System.Get a Pass! The America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands

Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to see migrating songbirds. After leaving their southern wintering grounds, the migratory birds begin arriving in March where the brightly colored males court the females before building a nest. Look for these beautiful, small birds, including eastern bluebirds, prothonotary warblers, painted and indigo buntings and more.
