The nesting period encompasses only a fraction of the annual cycle of waterfowl, but it is perhaps the most influential time of the year for waterfowl populations. During the nesting period, waterfowl are faced with exhausting physical demands and constant danger while attempting to propagate their species. The number of ducks and geese that ultimately join the fall flight hinges on the ability of nesting birds to overcome a host of challenges and threats.
The habitats used by waterfowl for nesting vary greatly by species and often among individuals of the same species. Based on their nesting habitat preferences, ducks are grouped into three general categories: upland-nesting species, overwater-nesting species, and cavity-nesting species. Upland-nesting ducks include most of the dabbling ducks such as blue-winged teal, mallards, northern pintails, gadwalls, and American wigeon. Overwater nesters consist primarily of diving ducks like redheads, canvasbacks, greater scaup, and ring-necked ducks. And cavity-nesting waterfowl comprise species such as wood ducks, buffleheads, common goldeneyes, and hooded mergansers. In some cases, certain species will nest in more than one habitat type and thus cannot be easily placed in a single category. Mallards, for example, are generally considered to be an upland-nesting species, but are known to nest in a variety of locations, including in overwater vegetation, trees, artificial nesting structures, and even the occasional backyard flower pot.
After a hen selects a nesting site, her next task is to create what is known as a nest bowl. Upland nesters often make a shallow depression in the ground called a scrape. Cavity-nesting species make their nests in recessed locations, usually in holes in dead and decaying trees as well as in artificial nest boxes. Overwater nesters typically build their nests in flooded cattails, bulrushes, or willows and on floating mats of woven vegetation.
Goose Breast Fajitas Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Marinating Time: 4-6 hours
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
2. Pour off and discard marinade. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add goose and brown evenly on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes each side. Add onions and peppers, and cook until onions are translucent.
3. Remove goose breast when still medium-rare. Allow to rest for a few minutes and then slice thinly across the grain of the meat. Arrange sliced meat on plates, top with onions and peppers, and serve with salsa, tortillas, and lime wedges.
Crock Pot Goose Fajitas In a crock pot place as much thoroughly cleaned goose as you require, for this recipe I used 6 breast & legs, and then combine the ingredients:
Cook for 6 to 8 hours on high, this will depend on how hot your crock pot cooks. When the meat starts to break apart it is done.
To serve place the meat on your favorite tortilla and then add cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa etc.... or what ever you may like on your Fajitas.
1 - small can of chipotle peppers
1 - small can of green chili's
Garlic salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
2 bottles - KC Masterpiece Fajita Marinade
Slow Roasted Duck This recipe works with any sort of waterfowl. Domestic ducks typically serve two to four. As for wild birds, a mallard, canvasback, redhead, gadwall or pintail will serve two (if you have other things on the plate), a goose four and a wood duck, bluebill, wigeon, ringneck or teal one.
