Abstract

There weas no evidence of age- or sex-specific differences in Anas rubripes distribution patterns in winter. Black ducks exhibited a stronger fidelity to coastal wintering areas. The early formation of breeding pairs and possibly predictable food resources may reduce age-sex segregation in distribution patterns during winter. -from Authors
