More than 25 species of ducks, geese, loons, and grebes can be found in New England. It may be cold, but winter is the best time to view large numbers of ducks and waterfowl. Familiarize yourself with their exquisite plumages from the comfort of your home in this online program before heading out in the field. We'll introduce you to our local waterbirds, examine similarities and differences between them, and show you the best places to find them. You will learn how useful patterns of contrast can be used to identify both individual birds and distant flocks.
