It’s the final day of the first of fall’s months, and it’ll feel like it with cool north winds and tapering precip, but things are getting better as the Sunday system moves out of the region. We’ve got the news and notes to get you geared up for a good week, including a new Duck Stamp winner, info on hawks and Dakota Edge Outdoors on the airwaves!

A WORK OF ART. The US Fish & Wildlife Service has selected a winner for the 2020-21 Duck Stamp and it is Alabama’s Eddie LeRoy, for his painting of a black bellied whistling duck pair at sunset. Over a billion dollars have been raised since the stamp’s inception in 1934 and the colorful art is a reminder of the species protected by the program.
HAWKEYE. A frequently seen bird of prey is the red-tailed hawk and nearly two million of them occupy the airspace above North America. Territorial and monogamous, the red-tailed hawk breeds in North Dakota and Canada before migrating south in many cases.
