    Description

    Cerulean warbler [Dendroica cerulea (Wilson) Aves, Parulidae] is a neotropical migratory bird that has become a focus of management attention. Since 1992, we have studied breeding birds on a 54-ha site owned by Anderson-Tully Company, in Desha County, AR. In 2002, we conducted an unreplicated experiment there to assess the species’ response to silvicultural manipulation within its habitat. We applied one of two sulvicultural prescriptions to randomly selected halves of the plot. Establishment criteria were that each half-plot be the same size and have had a comparable history of warbler use. Treatments were (1) a standard Anderson-Tully Company prescription designed to establish regeneration, develop existing advance regeneration, and add growth to residual sawtimber trees; and (2) a prescription designed to add growth to residual sawtimber trees and favor development of trees similar to those used by the cerulean warbler. Our initial posttreatment survey identified three cerulean warbler territories on the subplot treated with the cerulean warbler prescription and none on the other portion.
