Information about Ducks:

Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the Anatidae family of birds, which also includes swans and geese. The ducks are divided among several subfamilies in the Anatidae family. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water. Ducks are sometimes confused with several types of unrelated water birds with similar forms, such as loons or divers, grebes, gallinules, and coots.

Ducks exploit a variety of food sources such as grasses, aquatic plants, fish, insects, small amphibians, worms, and small mollusks. Diving ducks and sea ducks forage deep underwater. To be able to submerge more easily, the diving ducks are heavier than dabbling ducks, and therefore have more difficulty taking off to fly. Dabbling ducks feed on the surface of water or on land, or as deep as they can reach by up-ending without completely submerging. This strains the water squirting from the side of the beak and traps any food. \

It is common and widespread, breeding in all but the extreme north of Canada and Alaska and also in the Interior West through Idaho, Colorado, the Dakotas, and Minnesota, as well as eastern Washington and Oregon. The majority of the population breeds on wetlands in the Boreal Forest and subartic river deltas of Canada and Alaska. This dabbling duck is migratory and winters farther south than its breeding range, in the southern half of the United States, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and the Mid-Atlantic coastal region, and further south into Central America and northwestern South America.

The Green-Winged Teal prefers sheltered wetlands, such as bogs and swamps. They feed by "dabbling" for plant matter at or just below the surface of the water. This is a fairly noisy species, and the male has a very clear whistle, whereas the female has more of a muted quack.

Harlequin Ducks – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Harlequin Ducks:

The Harlequin Duck is a smaller, ocean going species of waterfowl. They are also called painted ducks, totem pole ducks, rock ducks and mountain ducks. It is also called the "Sea Mouse" due to the very odd, mouse-like squeaks it can emit. These birds are native to the northern coastal areas of North America, on both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The birds feed by what is called "dabbling" - this mean the animal feeds mostly along the surface of the water, or by tipping head-first into the water to graze on aquatic plants and vegetation. While, overall, the Harlequin Duck's populations are stable, those on the Pacific side of North America are declining and are considered endangered. This decline is likely to habitat loss, oil spills and the building of several hydroelectric plants.
