Photo Essay: Spring on the Prairies

A look at what breeding waterfowl will find as they return to the Duck Factory
Every year, DU conducts a variety of research in different parts of the Duck Factory. This research helps DU learn more about how habitat changes affect waterfowl breeding populations. This spring DU will begin its second year of research comparing duck nesting success in winter wheat fields compared to that of spring-seeded wheat fields and perennial grasslands. (photo by Ron Spomer)
