On a cold and damp winter morning, a stand of flooded timber in southern Arkansas is prime real estate. Not just for the rice farmers or timber barons of the region, but for the throngs of mallards (Anas platyrhynchos), other species of waterfowl and hunters alike, all brought together by a mass migration, ideal habitat and a love for one of North America's most recognized ducks. Here, mallard hens and drakes take to an open pool of water to feed in the water as the sun strains to cast shadows through the low-hanging clouds while the far-off sounds of ...

Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run. It was after one of these long runs that I returned to find Ali, who was three at the time, on her stomach rolling back and forth over a foam roller.
