Ducks, geese, wonderful waterfowl!  We will learn basic identification and characteristics of waterfowl found in Sonoma County and along the Laguna de Santa Rosa at different times of the year. Did you know that a goose species that overwinter in Sonoma County is known to migrate 3,000 miles over open ocean?  And that most ducks practice sexual dimorphism, where females and males of the same species look different? 

We will learn cool facts like the difference between “dabbling” and “diving” ducks and its importance to these masters of the water world. Learn about how the Laguna de Santa Rosa is an important stopover along the Pacific Flyway for thousands of migrating ducks and other water-loving birds.  They’ll talk about some of the challenges that waterfowl face, as well as success stories.
