A comment titled: Just to set the record straight in response to a report titled: DU and BP

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – June 24, 2010 – Ducks Unlimited was notified today it will receive a $2.5 million grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to provide additional habitat for waterfowl and other birds that will migrate to the Gulf Coast later this year. This partnership between NFWF and DU will seek to restore and enhance upwards of 20,000 acres of wetland habitat on lands adjacent to or near Gulf Coast marshes.

The funds will be used to flood alternative habitats in the critical rice region of coastal Louisiana and Texas. The areas to be flooded will provide crucial migration and wintering habitat within the Gulf Coast region. This will be especially important if oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill is pushed into fresh and intermediate salinity marshes by storms later this summer and fall. Normally, fresh and intermediate salinity marshes winter vast numbers of ducks, shorebirds, wading birds and other wetland-dependent birds.

This was taken from the DU website. It was easy to get the facts. Note: money will be used in Louisiana and Texas.

A comment titled: Out of the Water in response to a report titled: Ducks and Dogs

Great looking dog. I see from the picture he's standing in the water. Not a bad thing for early season, but you'll be doing him a favor and extending his hunting life if you'll get him out of the water. Dogs are tough, he'll stand in that cold water all season and never complain; you need to watch out for his health....good luck.

A comment titled: The other way around in response to a report titled: greater scaup id

Greater Scaup has the green tint. Remember it this way " green is greater."

Also, look at the wings. Both have a white speculum, but in the Greater the speculum extents toward the wing tips as a dull white. In the lesser, the speculum is white, but the primary feather out toward the wing tips are grey, not dull white.

Hope that helps.
