Canvasback Clutch

Category: Articles,Blog,Education,Featured,News

The unmistakable profile of the canvasback, one of the most revered of North American waterfowl, is evident even as ducklings; the sloped head and long bill combo is their calling card! Canvasbacks are often reluctant breeders in an aviary. In fact, before this most recent clutch, it had been 5 years since we last hatched any! An influx of new birds and a drastic change in husbandry has led to a boon with the species this season, with 4 different females initiating nests! This is the first clutch to hatch and we are excited to see them once again!
