Ducks, geese, swans! Diving ducks, puddle ducks, cackling geese! Canada geese, tundra swans, trumpeter swans! Trying to figure them all out can drive you crazy! Come to this class to get started on identifying a mallard from a wigeon and a teal from a merganser, or from another teal for that matter! After an indoor presentation of informative slides we venture out to view wild waterfowl and practice what we learned.
