|Ruddy ducks are deep-water divers. Their long tail is an aid both in swimming and courtship displays.|
Continued . . . Over 200 species of migratory birds can be seen annually. Habitat conditions, as well as the timing of weather conditions with migration, determine how common or uncommon some species may be in any given year. Migrants like the snow goose may be few in number, or they can peak at close to one million birds!
Although waterfowl, shorebirds, and other waterbirds are most numerous, there are other equally conspicuous species on the Complex. For example, ring-necked pheasants, red-tailed hawks, white-tailed deer, painted turtles, and a wide variety of butterflies are abundant.
