The Schouten's run a licensed facility near Port Angeles and raise beautiful waterfowl, many of which are used for research programs or are sent to zoos. The facility maintains and raises 13 species of ducks commonly known as sea ducks, which are rarely seen in captivity. These sea ducks spend most of their lives in salt water, coming to fresh water and land only during the breeding season. The sea duck group includes some of the most spectacular and highly specialized of all waterfowl -- Harlequins, Long-tailed Ducks, and Spectacled, King and Common Eiders.
