Here's a link to the USGS, shows the oldest banded birds ever recorded. The oldest Black Duck was banded 1952 in PA, shot in Delaware in 1978. Over 26 years old!

Oldest Cananda Goose was 33 years old from Ohio.

Neat reading. I thought the twelve year old black duck we got this year was "old".

I killed a drake canvasback that was 17 years old. Its amazing how long a migratory bird can live considering the obstacles they go through on a daily basis.
