[CT Birds] Duck/Bird Stamps - Steve Oresman

     When I was President of the COA I talked to the DEP about our starting and putting up seed money for a joint annual non-game bird stamp. Keith Mueller generously agreed to provide the first painting gratis and I knew where I could get the money. The reception was initially enthusiastic and then the usual governmental  bureaucracy took control and after six months I was told that the DEP would have to get competitive bids to see if anyone else wished to put up the money to start a bird stamp where all the revenue above out of pocket costs would go to the DEP. Go figure. Needless to say the project died.

Why not issue a non-game wildlife stamp?It may be many people are reluctant to 
buy duck stampsbecause of the assocation with hunting.  I would thinkhaving a 
stamp that's non-hunting related would providea major funding source from an 
untapped market. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich

Please buy CT Duck Stamps.  All of the money goes towards habitat protection 
here in our state.  There is also a $2 migratory bird donation that you can make 

as well.

All of these monies are extremely helpful towards conservation in our state, but 

not nearly enough.  The income tax checkoff isn't nearly enough.

We need a stable, dedicated source of money for habitat protection and for non 
hunted wildlife.  The hunters have ponied up, they pay 11% on all ammunition and 

hunting equipment.  That 11% tax goes back to habitat protection and wildlife 
management.  In CT that amounts to over $2,900,000 annually that goes into 
habitat protection and management.  But, mostly targeting hunted species, as 
well it should, given where the money comes from.

Shouldn't we be willing to pay towards the things we cherish?  A 10% tariff on 
bird seed, for instance, could raise over $6,000,000 annually in CT. Thats $3 a 
bag.  Think about what good things could be done by Land Trusts, Conservation 
Commissions, the Audubons, The CT DEEP with that kind of bankroll.

Hi all,


Most of the money collected for Federal Duck Stamps goes directly towards 
habitat conservation (see below*). With a decline in stamp sales, there is a 
decline in available dollars. Birders can make a huge difference by purchasing 
these stamps, and have the added benefit of giving "free" access to National 
Wildlife Refuges. Daily access rates can be quite expensive, otherwise. I give 
them as birthday presents to friends. I believe the new one comes out July 1 and 

cost $15, although an artist signed one can be purchased for $25. Buy a few, 
it's worth it!! They can be purchased from a number of places: 





You can buy Federal Duck Stamps from the following vendors:



United States Postal Service




Phone: 1-800 STAMP-24 (1-800-782-6724)





Online: The Postal Store
Note: Once at the website enter search text "Duck Stamps" in upper right hand 
corner.





Select Post Office Locations:  Find a post office near you. 
Note: Call your local post office to check Duck Stamp availability.








Amplex Corporation (the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's distributor)




Phone: 1-800-852-4897





Online: www.duckstamp.com










Duck Stamps can also be purchased at most major sporting goods stores and large 
chain stores that sell hunting and fishing licenses.
You may also buy Duck Stamps at many national wildlife refuges. Find refuges 
near you at www.fws.gov/refuges. Call the refuge first to ensure they sell the 
stamps.





* From the Gov. page: "Federal Duck Stamps are a vital tool for wetland 
conservation. Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of 
Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for 
protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Understandably, the Federal 
Duck Stamp has been called one of the most successful conservation programs ever 

initiated and is a highly effective way to conserve America’s natural 
resources."

Regarding the recommendation for using organic peanut butter for suet, that is 
best avoided.  All peanut butter has low levels of aflatoxin, a toxin secreted 
by the Aspergillus fungus family.  This is toxic to birds.  Natural peanut 
butters without preservatives have the highest levels of aflatoxin, so should 
not be fed to any birds, domestic or wild.  Remember that "organic" and 
"natural" do not necessarily mean healthy and safe.  Preservatives exist for a 
reason.  Without them, bacteria and other organisms flourish.

2/14/13- Westport - Sherwood Island SP - 11 species of ducks including 2 male 
Canvasbacks in the Mill Pond, immature White-crowned Sparrow continues at the 
feeders near the nature center.

I witnessed a behavior between a drake and hen Common Goldeneye for the first 
time early this morning. I have always seen the males throwing their heads 
backwards at this time of year but today I watched a female with her head 
stretched forward and lying on the water's surface, almost as if she was dead 
and floating. I observed a male very close to her for about 30 seconds and then 
he swam over and grabbed the back of her head and spun her around several times 
as get head appeared very limp. I actually thought she was dead before she 
suddenly picked her head up and swam off. Has anyone else ever seen this?

As an additional piece of information to think about, the DEEP along with a 
number of different partners such as TNC and Audubon is submitting a competetive 

grant proposal to protect 82 acres of critical coastal habitat at a total cost 
of over $4 million dollars.? The chances of getting this money are slight, given 

that it is a competetive grant against other states in the Atlantic Flyway.? Of 
the 82 acres, 34 are prime early successional habitat that supports high 
priority species such as blue-winged warblers.? Statewide, we are at only 15-25% 

of our population objective for this species.? A 34 acre parcel, if properly 
managed over time, will support 3-4 pairs.? so, at a cost of approximately 2.6 
million dollars, we can contribute less than 1% towards our statewide objective 
for this species.? Think about the amount of resources that it will take to 
reach our objective for this species alone.? As another example, we have figured 

that it takes approximately $2,600 to successfully fledge an American kestrel 
here in CT.? With an annual allocation of <$100,000, in CT, we could de-list 
American kestrels, and keep them off the list.? This list of non-hunted species 
that are well below population objectives is long.?In contrast,?by and large, we 

have no hunted bird species except for woodcock and grouse and a few waterfowl 
species that are below a stated goal.

The difference is the amount of funding that goes towards the conservation of 
each suite of species, and where those funds come from.? I don't want to be 
preachy either, but, we are certainly at a proverbial crossroad in this state 
and elsewhere as to the future of conservation.

Hi Everyone,

Normally I keep my mouth shut and don't comment on these topics, but I think its 

an important one. I am sure I am like many of you on this site....I hate being 
preached to! But this subject is important enough to add a few thoughts from a 
slightly different perspective.

Since I was part of the "duck/conservation stamp" program a few years ago, I 
just want to add this.

I painted the CT duck stamp designs in 1996 (Oldsquaws at Greens Ledge Light in 
Norwalk) and 1999 (Canada Geese at Mystic Seaport) and the Rhode Island designs 
from 1999 through 2006. At that time signed and numbered limited edition prints 
were available for sale to compliment the stamps offering a nice art display to 
hang on your wall in your home or office. With the sale of the prints went a 
nominal royalty to the States, which added to their income. These prints were 
sold in many Editions from a standard edition to a high end Governor's Edition 
with a signed Governors stamp...again paying higher royalties to the States 
stamp program for conservation. Even artist's signed stamps are/were available, 
and some even included an artists mini color Remarque on the stamp for a few $$$ 

more. In the case of the RI program (which I published) a matching decoy could 
be ordered to compliment the stamp/print/Remarque package Edition again adding 
to the income for the State's Conservation Program.

The times have changed and many of the states no longer offer the prints for 
sale thus farther reducing the amount of money that was raised for the program. 
Now they are entirely dependent on the monies raised from the sale of the stamps 

only. THe fact that the stamps are acting as solo support for the program....we 
need to buy them!! Land management and acquisition doesn't happen by wishing it 
would, it takes $$$, and? lots of them!

I know many birders have a negative opinion (or much worse) for hunting and 
hunters, and that certainly is your right. But over the years I have heard so 
many times that the money from duck stamp sales are being used to make sure that 

hunters will always have enough waterfowl/birds to kill! Nothing can be farther 
from the truth...all you have to do is read Min's post to see that.

I am not sure if there is any birding organization that can match the money 
raised from us by Ducks Unlimited, Waterfowl USA. all the Waterfowler 
Associations from all the States as well as the many chapters of the Grouse, 
Woodcock and Wild Turkey Federations across this country. Yes the majority of 
them are hunters, but they are all aware that the money will be used for land 
management and conservation, not filling the skies and woods with game to shoot.

I have hunted waterfowl for most of my life. Even though I don't anymore, I know 

many who do. In fact 90 percent of my customer base actively hunt, and all 
understand the need for a vital conservation program or else they might as well 
give it up.....there will be no land to hunt on!

What is the cost??? The cost is that vital land and its management will fade 
away...than what? Where will we go then? Can you imagine going birding in this 
State without access to Hammo or any other State Park?? Or many of the lakes and 

fields around this State? What then?

For the cost of a few $$$ to purchase a few duck stamps shouldn't even be a 
question or should it be mentioned on this site...its just common sense! A few 
$$$ raised from the sale of duck stamps equals a future for the birds and a 
place for us to enjoy them is a (excuse the cliche)..."no-brainer"!!

Please read Min's post.

Good Birding to everyone!

Hi Tina,

That's a common waterfowl mating behavior. When I raised wild  
waterfowl in my aviary, I witnessed some strange mating behavior such  
as a drake black duck trying to mate with a hen G W Teal, and a male  
Fulvous Whistling duck enamored with a drake Cinnamon Teal. What is  
more interesting is watching the male courting behavior from all the  
different species. I like the Red-breasted Mergansers and Common  
Eiders the best.

At MacMillan's Pier in P'town you can watch the Eiders mating all day  
long....its especially interesting to watch the gallant males guarding  
their hens from all the other suitors!
