Northern Arizona, USA, post-wildfire avian data: western bluebird detection/non-detection and banding data

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Western bluebird (Sialia mexicana) population data were collected in northern Arizona, USA, following two wildfires (Hochderferr Fire, Horseshoe Fire) that occurred in May and June 1996. This is a data subset consisting of 8 years of bird data collection post-wildfire (1999-2006) and 3 years of vegetation data (2002, 2005, 2006), and is part of a larger long-term data set.

Detections of breeding birds in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (4th Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
These data document annual detections of breeding birds in canyons throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. Data were collected during the breeding season from 2001 through 2015, inclusive, and in 2018 and 2019. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts.

Incidental and long-distance bird observations in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (3rd Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
These data document detections of birds in canyons throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. A small number of detections were made in the valleys adjacent to these mountain ranges and in the Desatoya Range. Data were collected during the breeding season from 2002 through 2015, inclusive, and in 2018 and 2019.

Individual and environmental factors affecting lifetime reproduction and long-term (summed across sequential breeders) territory-specific reproduction by northern goshawks (Accipiter gentilis) in northern Arizona, USA

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
The northern goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) is listed as a sensitive species on most National Forests and has been shown to be affected by various forest management practices, especially logging and fire management. This data publication contains specific data from Reynolds et al. (2019) on lifespans, breeding lifespans, breeding attempts, number of lifetime mates, and turnover of male and female goshawks on 100+ breeding territories.

Bird counts in stands of big sagebrush and greasewood

Publications Posted on: June 22, 2020
Total numbers of birds and numbers of bird species were significantly (p=0.05 percent) higher in stands of big sagebrush than in stands of greasewood. This was especially true for Brewer’s sparrow, lark sparrow, and mourning dove. The big sagebrush ecosystem appears to support greater number of birds and more species of birds than does the greasewood ecosystem.
