A Review of Wildlife Management Practices in North Dakota

Effects on Nongame Bird Populations and Habitats


The Team would like to express our appreciation to Ms. Stephanie L. Jones, Regional Nongame Migratory Bird Coordinator, Region 6, US Fish and Wildlife Service, for not only the grant that funded this effort, but also for the willingness to support such an unusual and untried project.

We also must thank the following people for their insight, assistance, and advice. Kevin Willis and Mike McEnroe, ND Wetland Habitat Office, US Fish and Wildlife Service, must be recognized for their unselfish commitment of personal time and energy in providing the team with detailed information about the management practices.

Arnie Kruse, Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center, contributed much needed advice on understanding grazing systems. The staff at Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center provided a preliminary review of our review and technical insight into specific species' ecology and habitats. Mark Dryer and Karen Kreil, Ecological Services, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Craig Bihrle, North Dakota Game and Fish Department, offered many constructive comments on various drafts of the document, all of which were incorporated in the final product.

Finally, the Team would like to thank Linda Roeder, Natural Resources Division secretary, North Dakota Game and Fish Department, for not only her word-processing wizardry but also for her creativity, advice, and attention to detail. Without her assistance the Team would still be re-copying flip charts.
