American black ducks have been observed using Featherstone National Wildlife Refuge year-round. The ducks congregate within Farm Creek, which provides highly suitable sheltered emergent wetlands. This preserved habitat is especially important for black ducks since the species is suffering from loss of breeding and wintering grounds throughout their range.
