Last night we visited a large, shallow pond near Lake Champlain where mallards and black ducks are being tagged and recorded to track their migratory patterns toward conservation. After they were each given a small, silver tag round the right ankle, we were able to hold these elegant, long-necked creatures in our hands, firmly round their folded wings, then open our hands and set them free.
