    Description

    The encinal savannas of the sub-mogollon southwestern United States are important for livestock grazing and wildlife habitat. Little data have been collected on the ecology of these Sierra Madrean types of woodland land areas, which makes management difficult. Obtaining information such as habitat preferences for selected wildlife species and livestock can be an important piece of information towards the characterization and management of these areas. Habitat preferences of deer and cottontail were determined from repeated measurements of fecal accumulations on a circular 0.01-acre-plot centered over each sampling point in the spring and fall on twelve watersheds on the east slope of the Peloncillo Mountains in southwestern New Mexico. Bird surveys were also conducted in the spring and fall at the observational sites studied to obtain comparative listings of common bird species. Spring bird surveys resulted in 19 different species of birds on the watersheds.
