Waterfowl habitat use and selection during the remigial moult period in the Northern Hemisphere.
Because specific macroinvertebrate populations peak at different times during the open-water period, it would be more difficult for waterfowl to track macroinvertebrate communities, particularly during molt when ducks undergo simultaneous remigial molt rendering them flightless.
This study showed that caribou were the main prey of wolves in the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary but that wolves also preyed on vulnerable and seasonally abundant foods, such as migratory birds, especially in late summer when ducks and geese were flightless during their annual remigial molt.
