Waterfowl of America
Angelo State University’s Mayer Museum and the Angelo State Natural History Collections invite you to explore the many dabblers, divers, sea ducks, geese and swans that call North America home.
North America is home to 44 species of ducks, geese and swans collectively known as waterfowl. From arctic tundra to southern marsh and across all coastlines, these birds can be found in all but the driest of environments across the continent. Across this varied landscape waterfowl take many forms reflecting their size, shape, foraging methods and nesting habitats.
