Teal production is Excellent in state Blue-wing teal have had excellent nesting success in Iowa this year, according to preliminary reports from the State Conservation Commission's banding program. Personnel taking part in the banding program have seen many large broods of blue-wings with the young nearly ready to fly at this time. The blue-wing teal is Iowa's number-one nester and this excellent production is due in part to the high population and the optimum nesting conditions the past two years. Redheads and wood ducks are also having an excellent year in Iowa, although their numbers are not as significant as the blue-wings. The state will make a significant contribution to the flyway population of blue-wing teal and wood ducks as well as a visible contribution to the total flyway population of redheads and ruddy ducks. Mallard production is low in Iowa as it is over much of the nesting region. The banding program is in its second year, but this year's operation is the most intensive conducted by the Commission. The primary purpose of the banding program is to attempt to establish what happens to these ducks produced in Iowa. Are they taken in significant amounts by the hunters in the Mississippi Flyway? The answer to this question will aid in evaluating Iowa's role in waterfowl production. During the banding operation, it is estimated that between 2,500 and 3,000 birds will be blue-wing teal. Coot are probably the most abundant of our nesting migratory game birds on which there is an open season. Although coot are not too important to the Iowa hunter, over the whole Mississippi flyway, they rank second only to the mallard in the hunter bag. Iowa's coot production is a significant part of the flyway totals. They rank second to the blue-wing-teal in-the banding operation only because they are more difficult to trap than the ducks. They out-produce the ducks in Iowa by a considerable margin. Our primary production area lies' in the prairie pothole region of northern and western Iowa, where the banding is taking place.
