our research question was name 6 animals that are in our wetland and what
animals we want in our wetland
We have been studying the Delridge wetland. it is a type of marsh and we have seen mallard ducks living there and raccoons near the wetland. This blog talks about 6 different types of animals that live in the wetland and animals we want to live in our wetland.
Animals we have seen.
In biome expedition it says ‘’Mallard Ducks range from 20 to 26 inches long and a wingspan of 32 to 39 inches.’’. To tell the different genders you look at the top of their head if its bold green or blue it’s a male if its light brown its female. Young mallard ducks ride on their ride on their mothers back or follow in a straight line. The Mallard Ducks eat plants, dragonflies, flies, crustaceans and worms.
Raccoons range from 4 to 20 pounds and 23 to 27 inches long. Raccoons will consume just about anything including trash if they live close to humans. They will get into gardens as well. They are very skilled in getting food including smashing melons so that they can get to the insides of them. What they will feed on depends on their location. They gorge in the spring and summer to build up reserves of fat for the winter. Common items include mice, eggs, some small lizards and insects. If they are able to be around water, they have been seen washing their food off before they consume it. Plenty of their food comes from in the water including frogs and crayfish. They will also consume fruit and plants.
They are excellent swimmers and they love to swim.
Study.com says ‘’Some of the thing's worms eat are dead plants alive plants dead animals' animal poop and other microscopic animals.’’. after they eat, they grind it up and digest it and pass it as waste and feed the soil and plants. Worms move through the soil for food and reproduction and they come to the surface when it rains.
The black-capped chickadee is a small, nonmigratory, North American songbird that lives in deciduous and mixed forests. It is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is the state bird of Massachusetts in the United States, and the provincial bird of New Brunswick in Canada.
they Mostly insects, seeds, and berries. Diet varies with season; vegetable matter (seeds and fruits) may be no more than 10% of diet in summer, up to 50% in winter. Summer diet is mostly caterpillars and other insects, also some spiders, snails, and other invertebrates; also eats berries. In winter, feeds on insects (especially their eggs and pupae), seeds, berries, small fruits. Will eat fat of dead animals.
Animals we want to see.
Tiger Salamander will hibernate for the winter and then emerge again in the spring. The temperatures are going to affect the time of year when they hibernate and when they are active again. They tend to live solitary other than when they are moving for mating. The males are very aggressive when it comes to mating. Sometimes males will imitate females so that they can get closer to the females without other males knowing about it. This is a way for those that aren’t strong enough to take on the mature males to be able to have a chance to mate. Sometimes it will work but often the females will avoid mating with such males. Worms, insects, frogs, and even other salamanders are part of the diet for them. They tend to eat at night when it is cooler. They are very aggressive when it comes to hunting. They are fast and they are calculated so they almost always get their prey. When they are in a larvae stage, they will eat very small fish such as minnows.
The great blue heron makes various croaking sounds. They can use them to communicate such as calling for a mate or for defending territory and every out of curiosity to see what is going on in their habitat. The great blue heron creates their nest in trees that are very tall. This allows them to be able to offer safety for their offspring from various types of predated. They tend to live inland. There are plenty of food choices for the great blue heron. Most of their diet consists of small fish. They also consume shrimp and crab. They may dine on rodents' amphibians and, small reptiles. They have excellent vision that allows them to find their prey. They move very quickly so they often have the element of surprise on their side.
in the wild, they eat grubs, spiders, worms, insects, slugs, snails and other invertebrates. If your toads are wild-caught, try offering them what they eat in the wild. Adult toads should be offered three to six food items every other day. American toads are mainly nocturnal. They are most active when the weather is warm and humid. They are solitary, congregating only at breeding ponds in the early summer and late spring. During the day American toads hide under rocks or logs or dig into dead leaves and soil.
These 7 animals are what live in our Delridge wetland and what we want to live in it.
