The Pintail Action Group Website

The Pintail Action Group coordinates research, conservation and management actions for Northern Pintails in North America.

This population remains a source of concern due to ongoing low population estimates. Whilst our understanding of factors limiting population growth – low reproductive success of prairie-nesting Pintails being a noteworthy reason – has improved, probably the greatest conservation challenge is implementing the actions believed necessary to improve the productive capacity of prairie landscapes.
