Canvasback

Also present on Capitol Lake on 21 October 2021 were a few Canvasbacks. These ducks show fluctuating population numbers, with high numbers in wet years, and lower numbers during dry ones. Canvasbacks have also benefited from strict hunting regulations. Populations have increased since 1995, appearing to have recovered from a stretch of below average numbers from the late 1970s through 1995. We saw six Canvasbacks during our short census.
