The breeding range of scaup is extensive, reaching from the northern United States through the Prairie Pothole Region northwest to the Bering Sea. The largest breeding population occurs in Canada's western boreal forest. Scaup begin nesting relatively late, usually from late May to mid-June. They prefer territories near deeper, more permanent wetlands with emergent vegetation such as bulrushes, which often hold abundant populations of aquatic insect larvae.
