Revised Recovery Plan for the U.S. Breeding Population of the Wood Stork RF(1) 4 North Florida Ecological Services Field Office (904) 731-3336 Wood stork Mycteria americana 3 2.3.2 Determine optimal drawdown time of impoundments. Ongoing Current Other South Carolina Department of Natural Resources Work type not yet selected Species Expert, Internal Technical Assistance Managed wetlands provide temporary high-density foraging habitat during seasonal drawdowns. There are 28,491 ha of coastal tidal marsh impoundments in South Carolina. These impoundments are maintained and managed primarily for waterfowl, but when the water level is lowered, fish are forced off the marsh bed and concentrate in the deeper canals that generally surround the impoundment. SC DNR works with landowners to maximize stork use of impoundments. We encourage a staggered series of drawdowns instead of lowering all the impoundments at once; encourage drawdowns in late June and early July to provide high quality habitat during late chick development and foraging opportunities for recently fledged chicks. Impoundments near nesting colonies are of particular importance. One or several drawdowns each spring or summer are normal management actions taken to encourage food plants for waterfowl, but additional drawdowns and reflooding on new and full moon tides also enhance the area for a variety of waterbirds. Also, Audubons' Kathwood Ponds and Harris Neck NWR also draw down managed impoundments to optimize use by wood storks during the nesting season and when chicks are fledging.
