According to DU the atlantic flyway, primarily in the Mid Atlantic states have seen a 60% decline in the Black Duck population and the FEDS are looking for answers and possible remedies?????
I know we have an abundance of Black Ducks in New England and the Maritimes but you know how these studies always end up. We get the short end of the stick!!
Hopefully it won't happen, but its something to keep an eye on just in case we need to voice an opinion rather than find out when it's too late!
Here's a few articles from down there???

And YES money from the Mid Atlantic states are driving the issue!!! They should spend it on cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay instead of wasting it on another study.
