OF WOOD DUCK BREEDING HABITAT COMPONENTS IN MINNESOTA James B. Berdeen, Edmund Zlonis, Scott Hillard1, and Mark D. Nelson2.

In fact, the mallard is thought to be the most abundant and wide-ranging duck on Earth. Habitat Mallards prefer calm, shallow sanctuaries, but can be found in almost any body of freshwater across. Wood Duck Nesting Program. In the early s, habitat destruction and overharvesting pushed the wood duck to the brink of extinction. Today, thanks to hunting restrictions and concern for improved nesting and brood areas, the wood duck is once again a common Missouri resident.
Habitat loss and overhunting for meat and plumage caused severe declines in the wood duck’s population by the late s, but federal and state conservation laws helped rescue this species, and artificial nesting boxes have helped increase populations to where they are now stable. A review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop models for breeding and wintering habitats for the wood duck (Aix sponsa). The models are scaled to produce indices of habitat suitability between 0 (unsuitable habitat) and 1 (optimally suitable habitat). Habitat suitability indices are designed for use with Habitat Evaluation Procedures previously developed by the U.S. Fish.

habitat types, biologists and managers often use the term duck-use days, of DUD. Assuming that the ducks are mallard size and that daily temperatures are thirty to seventy degrees Fahrenheit, a duck-use day is the measure of which one acre of a given habitat type will provide adequate forage to meet the nutritional requirements of one duck for.
The Wood Duck is one of the most stunningly pretty of all waterfowl. Males are iridescent chestnut and green, with ornate patterns on nearly every feather; the elegant females have a distinctive profile and delicate white pattern around the eye. These birds live in wooded swamps, where they nest in holes in trees or in nest boxes put up around lake margins.

Beautiful and unique, this duck of woodland ponds and river swamps has no close relatives, except for the Mandarin Duck of eastern Asia. Abundant in eastern North America in Audubon's time, the Wood Duck population declined seriously during the late 19th century because of hunting and loss of nesting sites.
Its recovery to healthy numbers was an early triumph of wildlife management. WOOD DUCK (Aix sponsa) HABITAT USE INFORMATION General Wood ducks (Aix sponsa) inhabit creeks, rivers, floodplain lakes, swamps, and beaver ponds (Bellrose ).
The major breeding range of the wood duck is in the eastern United States, from Florida and east Texas north to Maine and North Dakota, and north into the eastern Canadi an provi nces Cited by: Natural Wood Duck Habitat Imagine a acre beaver swamp with standing live and dead timber, islands of grass and weeds, tangles of brush, patches of aquatic plants, and plenty of dragonflies and damselflies.

Nesting cavities should be within 1 ⁄ 2 mile from water, although wood ducks have been known to nest up to 1 mile away from water.
Mature trees of at least 16 inches in diameter are the primary source of cavities. plumer, squealer, swamp duck, tree duck, wood widgeon, crested wood duck and Carolina duck attest to its unique habits, features and haunts.
The commonly used name “wood duck” denotes its affinity for trees. Wood ducks spend most of their life in or near forested. By ending unregulated hunting and taking measures to protect remaining habitat, wood duck populations began to rebound in the s.
The development of the artificial nesting box in the s gave an additional boost to wood duck production. More information on the efficacy of nest boxes can be found in the Conservation Evidence : Anatidae.
Vital duck habitat is quickly disappearing in the U.S. Conservation efforts by landowners are the key for nesting waterfowl. Jennifer Kross, communications specialist with Ducks Unlimited, says, in general, ducks require two habitats during the breeding part of their life cycle: grasslands and : Jodi Henke.

The wood duck (Aix sponsa) is the only duck species to nest in significant numbers in South Carolina. Historically, the species nested in natural cavities created by broken limbs and wood peckers. Due to the loss of hardwood bottomland habitat from extensive logging and heavy hunting pressure from market gunners wood duck populations declined to.
Wood Ducks declined seriously during the late 19th Century due to over-hunting and habitat loss, and were threatened with extinction early in the 20th Century. Legal protection, beginning in with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and major initiatives to provide nest boxes in appropriate habitat have helped the Wood Duck recover to healthy.Wood ducks readily take to man-made nest boxes.
Request the Woodworking for Wildlife publication for instructions on building a wood duck box. In the early s, habitat destruction and overharvesting pushed the wood duck to the brink of extinction.
