    Barred owls are opportunistic predators and they tend to eat a wide range of different animals like mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and invertebrates. In order to hunt, these birds of prey often use sit-and-wait strategy and soar off in pursuit of prey from a high perch. Barred Owl Strix varia Pinellas, Florida, United States. Wetland birds provide us with some of nature’s most wonderful sights, from vast X ocks wheeling overhead to newly hatched chicks drying in the sun. Apart from their beauty and recreational and economic importance, these birds are excellent indicators of water quality and measures of biodi- versity.

Fish and Wildlife Service],   We studied habitat use, time-budgets, home-range sizes, habitat selection, and movements based on spatial data collected with GPS devices attached to wild mallards trapped at an autumn stopover site in the Northwest European flyway.

Sixteen individuals (13 males, 3 females) were followed for 15–38 days in October to December Cited by:   The mallard (Anas platyrhynchos Linnaeus) is a generalist feeder, breeding in a wide range of habitats, yet showing considerable between site differences in density.

Variations in density and habitat use may result from inter- and intea-specific competition, habitat structure or food. We studied habitat selection of the mallard in four regions of Finland and by: Home range and habitat use of forest-dwelling mallards in Minnesota.

Each pair of mallards uses a home range, and the drake commonly establishes a territory that he defends against other mallards (Bellrose, ). Home-range size depends on habitat, in particular the type and distribution of water habitats (e.g., prairie potholes, rivers), and population density (Bellrose, ; Dwyer et al., ; Kirbyetal.

Habitat: The breeding range of the common goldeneye generally coincides with the boreal coniferous forest in North America (JohnsgardBellrose ). In a Minnesota study, 87 percent of breeding goldeneyes were found on large, sand-bottomed fish lakes (Johnson ), while in New Brunswick, this species preferred water areas with marshy.

Historical attitudes toward the land and its products were discussed in Chapter 1. Over the past century, the elaboration of land-use concepts and the development of policy guidelines have accompanied the intensification of management.

The growing expectation that every area can yield more products and services through applied technology than through single-purpose exploitation has raised. Mean home range sizes were and ha (SE =n = 57 and SE =n = 7) for Virginia rails and soras, respectively.
