  Wildlife and Habitat

Continued . . .

Mallards, gadwalls, and blue-winged teal are the most abundant ducks, but several other species of diving and dabbling ducks are also common to the area. Numerous shorebirds and sandhill cranes utilize habitat throughout the District. Spectacular concentrations of waterfowl, raptors, and other migratory birds can be found in the District each spring and fall. WPAs also provide habitat for many resident species of wildlife, including white-tailed deer, sharp-tailed grouse, greater prairie chickens, Hungarian partridge, pheasants, turkeys, and moose.
