The Audubon Society of Missouri Conservation Area Bird List.

"The area consists of Missouri River bottomlands, including wetlands, adjacent river islands, agricultural units, and timber tracts.

"Area development includes levees and water control structures. Waterways and pumps help manage these Missouri River wetlands and restore and maintain habitat for migratory wetland species and associated resident wildlife. Wetland management consists of providing fall and spring flooded habitat for migratory birds and emergent marshes for resident and breeding wetland wildlife.

"This area has been designated by Audubon Missouri as an Important Bird Area (IBA). IBA's are sites that have been identified by Audubon as those that are the most crucial for bird populations, due to their abundance and/or diversity of birds present.

"Grand Pass Conservation Area is within the Wakenda Bottoms Conservation Opportunity Area, a broad reach of the Missouri River floodplain. Historically, the dynamic shifting of the Missouri River with its braided channels and fluctuating water levels created a mosaic of marshes and wet prairies here." ~ Missouri Conservation Department
