Mallard Migration Map
Every week from late September to early February, more than 100 experts in North America's Mississippi and Central Flyways rank the progress of mallard migration in their areas. The data is compiled to bring you a map showing the status of mallard migration. These rankings do not depict mallard abundance. They indicate the relative progression of the fall migration. Estimated peak numbers of mallards may be lower or higher than average numbers during previous years due to annual variations in local wetland and environmental conditions. As a result, a dark color does not necessarily mean that lots of mallards are present in that region. We are pleased to add Alabama to the Mallard Migration Map this year, which will allow our waterfowl hunters to track the mallard migration. This can also generally apply to the fall migration of all waterfowl species.
