Wild Ducks of North America

About

There are forty one species of duck which breed in the wild in North America. Each species is represented in this work by an identical large yellow rubber duck. Each duck is placed on a clear plexiglass shelf which is screwed directly into the gallery wall. The shelves are twelve inches wide by ten inches deep. The ducks are placed on the shelf looking diagonally out over the front left corner of the shelf.

To the left of the shelf is an information panel about each species of duck found in North America (8.5″ x 6″), attached to the wall. The panel lists the name of the species in both English and Latin with other common names detailed. There is a paragraph describing the male and female of the species, including appearance, sounds uttered and any distinguishing features. Other categories covered include average measurements for length, weight and wingspan for both sexes; dietary habits; breeding behaviour; and information on the nest and eggs. A map of America is drawn at the base of the card, with red colouration indicating the breeding area and blue colouration showing the winter residence of the species.
