This video shows a blue-winged teal hen emerging from the dense cover provided by prairie grasses. The native grasses provide essential concealment for a safe and successful hatch.
Clips are from University of North Dakota field cameras placed on duck
nests at a Ducks Unlimited property in central North Dakota. DU is
collaborating with UND on the nest cams project to study the habits of
blue-winged teal. To view the full videos, go to UND's Wildlife@Home
website and see how you can participate in this citizen science project.
