Attracts insects and birds: Bicknell's Sedge and other sedges (Carex spp.) that occupy open upland areas are host plants to the Red-legged Grasshopper (Melanoplus femurrubrum), Large-headed Grasshopper (Phoetaliotes nebrascensis) and other grasshoppers. Other insects that feed on such sedges include the Southern Corn Billbug (Sphenophorus callosus) and leaf-mining larvae of the moth Elachista madarella. Some birds eat the seeds during the summer, fall, or winter ( Horned Lark, Savannah Sparrow, Henslow's Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Snow Bunting, Lapland Longspur, and Slate-Colored Junco.)
