McDonald, in Advances in the Study of Behavior, D Four-Year Delay in Plumage Maturation. Plumage maturation in long-tailed manakins is an important clue to temporal patterns in their complex social system. Long-tailed manakins are unusual among passerine bird species because they have a completely age-specific 4-year delay in plumage maturation, which is at least a year longer.   The Central Valley of California (), USA, is one of the most important waterfowl wintering areas in the world (Bellrose , Gilmer et al. ).Half or more of the northern pintails (Anas acuta; hereafter pintail) in North America migrate to and winter in California, arriving as early as the first week of August and remaining through March (Bellrose , Austin and Miller ).

The Cornell Lab has partnered with Waterford Press to publish a series of three laminated foldout ID guides for the common waterfowl and duck-like birds in North America, with a focus on picking out patterns of white and dark.

The ability to ID ducks on the wing won’t just make you a better hunter and keep you on the right side of the law—it’s downright fun to know what you have working the blocks. The beauty and diversity of species is what elevates duck hunting above so many other pursuits.

Mallards are the most familiar and most widespread dabbling duck in the world, and knowing how to properly identify these ducks is the key to understanding the identification of all ducks, including picking out the mallard clues in hybrid ducks. Birders who can easily identify mallards—males, females, eclipse males, and mallards in flight—can use that expertise to quickly identify what.

Waterfowl are birds that are strong swimmers with waterproof feathers and webbed feet. They use their webbed feet as flippers to push through the water. Ducks, geese, and swans are waterfowl.

Many waterfowl spend much of their time on ponds and lakes. Some kinds swim in the sea near coastlines. Others, such as most geese, live mainly on grassland.

successfully viewing waterfowl: • Look for waterfowl in ponds, lakes, streams, marshes and bays. • Watch for waterfowl during their spring and fall migra-tions. Early morning or evenings are the best times of the day to view these birds as they fly off and land on the water.
