Waterfowl Banding Blog

Have you ever seen a bird with a band on its leg? U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologists use these items to learn more about bird populations by recording where and when banded birds are found to help ensure healthy populations. Right now, biologists are banding waterfowl in Canada. Read some blogs from the field and learn more about the program.

Junior Duck Stamp Contest

Join us on April 21 in Charleston, SC, where judges will choose the artwork that will grace 25th Junior Duck Stamp and raise funds for students to connect with nature through the arts. You can support YOUR state Junior Duck Stamp program by volunteering at your state contest, teaching kids about conservation, or hosting the traveling art exhibit.
