4. Ducks: Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens, Washington, D.C.

After spreading out in summer to breed in the prairie potholes of the upper Midwest and Canada, ducks ride out the winter in huge flocks in warmer parts of the country. In fall, millions of ducks follow flyways south, resting on virtually any expanse of open water along the way. Fall is a great time to see ducks such as this green-winged teal at urban national parks, including D.C.’s Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens. Photo © Michael Mill/Bigstockphoto.
