Shortstopping:

The process of creating habitat improvements to hold geese or ducks throughout the winter in an area that was historically used only as a migratory stopover point en route to wintering grounds farther south. Examples of shortstopping methods include measures that keep water bodies open (that is, unfrozen) and available to birds all winter, or providing food items on which birds can forage throughout the winter in areas where little or no food was formerly available.
