DescriptionTo woodland owners or managers who are interested in bird-habitat improvement, the authors suggest managing for: (1) people with slight to moderate knowledge of birds; (2) high numbers of both individual birds and bird species, particularly the conspicuous species; (3) seeing and hearing birds near trails and other human-activity areas; (4) bird nesting; and (5) natural-appearing habitat. The nesting-habitat preferences of 31 representative species are listed. Guidelines are offered for trails, sites, plants, growth stages, dimensions and lay-out, and treatments.
