Male Long-tail Duck

Vancouver Island, BC

Long-tailed ducks are mid-sized sea ducks. In North America, long-tailed ducks breed in arctic and subarctic wetlands from the west coast of Alaska across most of northern Canada to the east coast of Labrador. The ducks migrate relatively late in fall and early in spring. Actual migration routes are largely unknown, but are presumably coastal. Each May and June, perhaps as many as one million long-tailed ducks migrate into the Beaufort Sea region from the west (including Russia) on their way to breeding areas in northern Alaska and Canada. ~ Sea Duck Information Series
