Puddle ducks, also known as dabblers, are in a group that tips up the tail when feeding.
They also have large, powerful wings for vertical take-off, and their legs are positioned near the center of the body for easier movement on land.
A colored wing patch, usually iridescent and called a speculum, is also unique to the puddle duck.
The IBO was created in 1984 by a dedicated group with the mutual desire to ensure that bowhunting and the ideals of wildlife conservation will survive, expand and flourish to be shared, enjoyed and passed on to future generations.
