      Moist-soil wetland plants provide food and cover for a diversity of wildlife species, including waterfowl and other waterbirds. Thus, conservation and management of moist-soil plants has become a major component of wildlife conservation efforts in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley and elsewhere in North America.

Over a period of many years the Bureau of Biological Survey has investigated the food habits of game ducks and has studied the propagation of the plants on which they feed. In this bulletin the writers have attempted to consolidate the available information on waterfowl foods. Over the past thirty years. a need has developed for plants to improve the wetland habitat 1n California. This report is the culmination of ten years of testing in search of water­ fowl food plants. Many of the plants evaluated have potential for waterfowl food, but most have cultural and management technique problems. In the spring of

    Geese are large birds that live near rivers and lakes and belong to a group called waterfowl. Most waterfowl eat aquatic plants and animals, but geese gather most of their food on land. Most are vegetarian, grazing on land near fresh water, or feeding on leftover seeds in fields.

It provides both food and cover essential to the existence of wildlife. Plant the natural foods that will coax them to stop on your property. Duck foods planted in the spring will grow and produce food for ducks in the fall. Plant several kinds of food and the waterfowl will stay longer as they like variety.

Purpose: Native plants favored by moist-soil management provide valuable food and cover for wetland wildlife species. Seasonally flooded moist-soil areas also provide an abundance of aquatic invertebrates used by wildlife. This practice provides food and habitat for waterfowl, wading and shorebirds, reptiles, amphibians, and other wetland species.

If you’re a waterfowl hunter, a bird watcher, or even a casual fan of some waterfowl habitat management shows on television, you may have heard of “moist-soil management.” It is simply the strategy of encouraging natural wetland plants to grow so waterfowl, especially ducks, can benefit from eating a diversity of seeds, tubers, and aquatic.

The food habits, feeding behavior and habitat requirements of shorebirds differ from those of migrant waterfowl and warrant some special consideration in the design and management of wetland areas.

Most shorebirds prefer feeding areas that include shallow water up to 3 inches deep and exposed, bare mud flats containing short, sparse vegetation. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Oberholser, Harry C.

These waterfowl food plants include smartweed, wild millet and panic grass. In the fall, these areas are flooded to make the food plants accessible for ducks and geese as they arrive from their migration journey.

Duck hunting and waterfowl habitat management are among the many uses and functions of Florida waterbodies. Most ducks in Florida are migratory, flying into the state for the winter from as far away as northernmost Canada and state's many wetland habitats, abundance of wintering ducks and number of public hunting areas make Florida an ideal place for this sport.Dr.

I have seen thousands of wood ducks coming into roost on this water. There is a mix of wood ducks, hooded mergansers, and a few mallards, gadwalls, and geese. We are wanting to plant about 10 food plots to bring in more mallards, and hopefully have them imprint on the area over the years.

My question is, what can we plant in standing water?
