We counted 47 Masked Ducks (Nomonyx dominicus) in seven flocks during the fall and winter of 1992-1993 on 1009 64.75-ha plots in the Coastal Plains of Texas. Among the three wetland subclasses used by Masked Ducks, bird densities were higher on lacustrine littoral aquatic-bed rooted vascular and lacustrine littoral aquatic-bed floating vascular than palustrine scrub-shrub broad-leaved deciduous wetlands. These wetlands provide important habitat even though they are not the most abundant wetlands in the region.
