The Louisiana Duck Stamp Program includes a contest to select the design of the annual state duck stamp. The featured species for the 2021 contest is the mottled duck. Sometimes called black mallards or summer French ducks, mottled ducks are large, dark-brown, dabbling ducks that frequent coastal marsh and adjacent agricultural fields and pastures along the western Gulf Coast from Mexico to coastal Alabama. Because mottled ducks live their entire lives in coastal wetland habitats, they are at risk from the degradation and loss of those habitats. Both mid-winter and breeding population estimates for mottled ducks have declined markedly in the last decade, resulting in a growing conservation concern for this iconic Gulf Coast species.
John Nelson Harris of Groveland, Florida, has won the 2021 Louisiana Waterfowl Conservation Stamp Competition sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF). The annual contest, in its 33rd year, determines the image on what is commonly called the Louisiana Duck Stamp.
