Location and abundance of ducks captured and banded in Suisun Marsh

Detailed Description

Location and abundance of ducks captured and banded in Suisun Marsh during the late summer (May-September), and recovered (N=9,368) since 1932 in North America. The main map shows recovered mallards (orange) in the western U.S., and the inset map shows recovered mallard (orange; N=8,367), northern pintail (green; N=670), gadwall (blue; N=246), and cinnamon teal (yellow; N=85) in North America. Ducks were banded within the Suisun Marsh by the California Department of Fish and Game and California Waterfowl Association, and band recoveries were thereafter managed by the U.S. Geological Survey’s Bird Banding Lab.
