    Description

    Habitat management for neotropical migratory birds must be based upon land capability, vegetation, successional patterns, response to treatments, landscape diversity, and speciedhabitat relationships. Neotropical migratory birds use diverse arrays of aquatic, early successional, and forest habitats. Management of neotropical migratory birds involves enhancement of habitat diversity. We describe a process that includes evaluation of potential habitat capability, inventory of existing conditions, and prescriptions for necessary structural features for species diversity. Silvicultural treatments to manipulate vegetation structure are presented for major forest cover types in New England, and applicability to other regions is discussed.
