When you mention nesting ducks in our State, there are two common reactions. Perhaps half of us Alabamians seem to think we have no nesting waterfowl; the other half seem surprised that all species of ducks and geese do not nest here. The truth lies somewhere in between. Certainly we are too far south for any significant waterfowl nesting, but we do have at least some breeding birds.
