    These two plants seem to be good fits for some of the areas I would like to plant.

    Does anyone have any experience with the duck attracting powers of Sagitaria Latfolia (Duck Potatoes or Western Manna Grass?

    I planted a few patches along the shores of small permanent ponds, ringers seem to like them and other ducks eat what is floating around after the ringers dig them up. IMO it's not something that will pull birds to an area but if they're already in the area and find it, it will concentrate them.
