On April 16th, Kelly will be presenting her Tuesday Talk, “Sitting ducks: The effects of commercial forest harvesting on Waterfowl in New Brunswick”. Learn about the American black duck, the most abundant breeding waterfowl species in New Brunswick. Evidence from breeding bird surveys suggests that black duck populations in commercially forested areas of NB have declined in the last 20 years, the cause of which is unknown. Often referred to as "wary" and "intolerant of disturbance," the effects of commercial forestry on breeding black duck productivity and distribution is unknown. Kelly's talk will dive into the effects of commercial forestry on the survival and wetland selection of American black ducks.
