Founded in 1987, the Nevada Waterfowl Association (NWA) was established by individuals concerned with the rate of deterioration of our wetlands. The NWA’s vision is to restore and enhance Nevada’s wetlands and the wildlife dependent upon them, especially waterfowl and shorebirds.

Dedicated to preserving and restoring wetlands and wildlife habitat within the state necessitates the formation of local chapters to help identify areas at risk and generate support at a local level. Through this process, NWA is successful at identifying projects relevant to our cause and creating solutions that enrich our wetlands. Additionally, NWA works in conjunction with various state and federal agencies to reach these goals.

Another canvasback geolocator has been returned for downloading. Will download the data, and get it back in the mail to the hunter who sent it in. Good work Mr. anonymous, much appreciated to learn where this bird has been over the past 11 months! ... See MoreSee Less

Received the weekly band report from the Bird Banding Lab and saw a wood duck got shot 2 weeks ago by Sean Hoferer in Fallon, NV that was banded January 29, 2009. I enjoy seeing this weekly list, so I looked through our data, and this is the new oldest band shot as part of this project. What is neat, is we either caught or saw it (has a yellow tarsal band) in 31 different months since banding, including each of the 9 years. Looking at the data, this bird would only hang out in Fallon where we could look for it in January through May or so, and then see it again the next spring. Almost zero records in summer or fall. Pretty cool. Attached is a photo provided by Sean. These interesting patterns is why we started putting geolocators on waterfowl. We are hoping the geolocators we attached to 100's of wood ducks in Fallon can help us understand where they move to before coming back to Fallon sometime in the annual cycle. Sean, thanks for reporting the band so we knew what happened to this old man! ... See MoreSee Less
