Watertown, NY, Sep 21, 2011 — The north country is part of the Atlantic flyway, one of four major bird migration routes in the nation. Every year, thousands of waterfowl migrate north and south with the seasons along the route. And each summer the Department of Environmental Conservation traps and bands ducks as part of an effort throughout the northeast states to track populations. Reporter Joanna Richards went out with a crew from the DEC's Brownville field office to the shore of Perch Lake near Watertown to see how the process works.
