The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Tufted Duck is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
This is an Old World species and a regular visitor to western Alaska. In winter and spring it is casual along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
