    Only with a special use permit.. ..meaning you would orphany have to have an approved research project, and would need a collecting permit (state and federal) to capture the birds.

    How were you planning on keeping snipe? Soras? They are very difficult.

    Plants don't relate to the needed nutrition. Migratory birds use a lot of habitats to meet their needs. ...captive birds can not.. ..besides soras and snipe do not use cattail and lotus habitats.. ...
