That is WAY COOL!!! I'd love to see more studies lake that. I sent that link to my wife who is a 7th grade science teacher. She's going to incorperate that into some of her lessons.

I found the Arkansas Mallard Tracking site before hunting season last year and have kept an eye on it on a regular basis since. It is interesting to track an individual duck and see where all it has been. It has given me a pretty good indication as to when to expect new birds here.

The AGFC had the satellite tracking on the mallards during last season as well. There have been 3 or 4 ducks shot with the transmitters on them. I think one was shot in Arkansas last week.

Were all the ducks released in Arkansas? If so alot of them are flying north. :umm:
The group ended up with 420 birds.

The birds were trapped and released in Arkansas. I watched it during the summer and saw them migrate north and then back down again this year. Pretty neat stuff. You can read more info. about it on the AGFC site.
