    Default Natural habitat

    Habitat project flooded out this spring so I let it go and here is the result. It is 32 acres more just like this.

    I would say that is the definition of early succession habitat! Should be an insect/brood producing mecca!

    Sometimes you just can beat what mother natures produces on the landscape, that looks like great habitat.

    Yep just a good old South Dakota weed patch---- a week ago I put up 1 rooster and then 2 hens followed by 16 chicks of 2 different sizes and saw 4+ other chicks run and not fly all in about 50 yards. It is full of hopers and other insects and lots of sunflowers and thistle and many other weeds I do not know what most of them are.

    When I was young my dad just loved to find places like this and always found birds, this patch is rather large say about 30 to 40 acres with corn and milo near by and will be a challenge to hunt.

    OH and it has a small pond on it to

    Well SDJim, if you need an extra body and dog power to surround the roosters in that weed patch just give a 15 hour heads up and i'll head west.....

    Looks awesome Jim. I have been gone a while. Working out of town an hr away. Plus took out 70 or so Ash trees and replanted 5' high techny hedge rows for wind break and winter cover. I am over grown with spruce I planted 15 years ago, so I will be renting a tree spade this fall and moving a bunch of those to other areas on the place too. My grass is awesome this year as well. I will have to take some photos. Great job, enjoy your fall.
