Going Green: Duck Study
College of Environmental Science and Forestry researchers are studying mallards and black ducks as they migrate through the Finger Lakes. Capturing ducks in Cayuga Lake and Owasco Lake, they equip them with transmitters to track them during the spring and fall. They hope for some insight into breeding habitat they might help manage natural resources to encourage the production of more black ducks. a native New York species.
