Live "DuckCam": Check out waterfowl in the Mississippi Delta

Waterfowl are continually arriving on many Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) in the Delta to make Mississippi their winter home.  A special video camera was installed on one of these WMAs to give the public a live look at the lives of waterfowl and other waterbirds in the Delta.

This is the first time that this technology has been used to give the public the opportunity to view live footage of wintering ducks on public lands that are open to hunting.  

The camera shows birds using shallowly flooded wetland habitat used primarily by waterfowl for foraging.  Waterfowl behaviors are also displayed as they interact with each other, and as they react to pressures such as birds of prey.  

As winter progresses, this will provide insight on how duck numbers and species change, as well as how they use wetland habitats.
