Abstract

Examined shorebird use of three wetland management treatments in NE Missouri during one spring and summer-fall migratory periods. Shorebirds typically used units managed for native wetland vegetation (moist-soil and marsh) more than agricultural units. Moist-soil and marsh units were used by more shorebirds if drawdowns were initiated just prior to or during the migratory period. Staggered drawdowns of several units are necessary to provide adequate habitat for shorebirds during the spring and summer-fall migratory periods. -Authors
