Gadwall breeding distribution in North America is mostly the Western United States, up into Canada and Alaska, though the majority will choose to stay in the upper western states and the surrounding Canadian area. This species also almost exclusively breeds in prairie potholes in the Great Plains and up into the Canadian Prairies. They breed across the Palearctic, too. Breeding season diets are recorded as being half animal matter and half plant matter, whereas other times of the year they primarily consume plant matter. This species has shown a greater next success rate than other prairie nesting ducks due to selecting nesting sites in extremely dense cover.
In North America, gadwall wintering distribution is the southern half of the United States and Midwest, following up the east coast, and down into Mexico. Beaver ponds, cypress brakes, fresh and saltwater marshes, and farm ponds are suitable for this species during this time. Plant matter such as coontail moss, duckweed, and widgeon grass, and animal matter such as snails and midges, are preferred diet. Gadwall will often steal food from diving ducks (such as American Coots) when they make it back to the surface, and do not make the best dinner guests. Globally, gadwall are found throughout most of Eurasia.
