Abstract We conducted a two year study on the Table Mountain Wildlife Habitat Management Unit in Goshen County Wyoming. The purpose of the study was to relate waterbird use and productivity to changes in water levels in the 12 water impoundments. We observed 59 waterbird species on the Unit. Breeding pairs of waterfowl were dabbling ducks and geese. Our results indicated that there were significant correlations between waterbird use and water level. Shore birds and dabbling duck use was negatively correlated with mean water depth and positively correlated with water level coefficients of variation. Other bird groups and their young were positively correlated with mean water depth and negatively correlated with water level coefficients of variation.
