    Description

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Environmental Laboratory has conducted seasonal avian surveys (winter, spring, summer, fall) from Spring 1998 through Summer 2002 at approximately 127 permanent point-count locations on Fort Belvoir, VA. This work has resulted in a data-rich baseline understanding of the distribution and abundance of birds, as well as the relative importance of different habitats on the installation. Our investigation identified opportunities to enhance or create improved early-successional habitat on Fort Belvoir for Partners in Flight (PIF) priority birds within the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Plain physiographic area (MACP). This document describes the development of a site-specific plan, in support of the MACP Bird Conservation Plan (BCP), for improving habitats of earlysuccessional bird species at Fort Belvoir, VA.
