Winous Point Marsh shared Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge's Drake Pintail Preening. ...

At some point in time, we all need a bit of cleaning. Ducks clean and repair their feathers in an act called preening. This beautiful male Northern Pintail seems to be taking a break from feeding with Mallards in one of our moist soil impoundments at Duck River Bottoms.

Nice article about winter duck banding in Ohio. Winous Point is a cooperator in this project, banding 500 or more ducks every winter. ...

Wildlife Management Behind the Scenes: Banding Black Ducks Nets fired from a small canon are used to trap and band black ducks. The ducks are baited to a location and the nets are deployed remotely. The bands each have a number that helps biologist track the movement of black ducks that are banded here in Ohio. These photos were taken at Blendon Woods Metro Park in central Ohio. ow.ly/pm6p308QkCG Learn more about the American black duck: ow.ly/fXOF308Ql9F

100 Artifacts in 100 Days: "1940s Era Punt Boat". Highlights from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Museum/Archives at the National Conservation Training Center. This 1940s era punt boat was donated to NCTC by Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, OH and probably dates back to the 1940s when Windsor T. White headed the local Winous Point Shooting Club. These boats were widely used for waterfowl hunting and earlier punt boats sometime had "punt guns" attached to the bow. This boat was was equipped with shell holders on the seat.

Update on the satellite-tagged herons in the northwest Ohio marshes! ...

Black-Crowned Night-Herons are on the move! Despite their status as the most wide-ranging heron in the world, Black-crowned Night-Herons are listed as a threatened species in Ohio. In the summer months, the majority of breeding birds can be found on West Sister Island, a designated wilderness area inhabited by many species of colonial wading birds. This past summer, The Ohio State University and Division of Wildlife began putting satellite transmitters on adult Black-crowned Night-Herons, to better understand their life-cycle. We are very excited to learn more about the mystery of where this population of Black-crowned Night-Herons spends the winter, and are happy to announce that some of the birds have initiated their migratory journey! Check out where they are going: ow.ly/3bA9306Iaip

Great summary of a project that Winous Point is helping support! ...

Despite their status as the most wide-ranging heron in the world, Black-crowned Night-Herons are listed as a threatened species in Ohio. In the summer months, the majority of breeding birds can be found on West Sister Island, a designated wilderness area inhabited by many species of colonial wading birds. This past summer, The Ohio State University and Division of Wildlife began putting satellite transmitters on adult Black-crowned Night-Herons, to better understand their life-cycle. This study will provide insight into the movement patterns and habitat requirements of night-herons during the nonbreeding season, which will be important to the conservation of this threatened species. Journey with us, AND the Night-Herons during this study! Updates, photos, and new findings about their movement and behavior will be posted regularly: ow.ly/lo8R305y2De
