Waterfowl Age

Postby WisconsinWaterfowler » Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:18 pm

I am assuming that this is the best place to post this because there are probably a couple of biologists lurking around here who know the answer. Anyways is there a way to tell the age of a duck. I can obviously tell if its a first year or not but how do they know when they band ducks that they are like 3 years old when they band them. Also how long does it take before a mallard gets a curl on its tail. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
