In Part 2 of this series on wood duck management, Hardister discusses the importance of constructing predator-proof artificial nesting facilities; maintaining and developing as much high-quality feeding, rearing, and wintering habitat as possible; and maintaining a safe balance between production and harvest.
The wood duck is the only waterfowl species native to North Carolina and is found all over the state. This bird has a tangible and intangible value to the state-â€“tangible through duck hunters and their purchases, which contribute materially to the economy, and intangible through the enjoyment of people who hunt with binoculars and cameras. Hardister discusses management of the species, distribution, and nesting habits.
