    Description

    Neotropical migratory birds are major components of the avifauna in most North American terrestrial ecosystems. Over 150 species of Neotropical migratory birds are known to breed in North America (Finch 1991a). Given the large number of species, developing effective management strategies for Neotropical migratory birds is a monumental task because each species exploits a unique niche, and thus requires different considerations for the management of its habitats and populations. Management is complicated further by temporal and spatial variations in resource-use patterns by many species. Thus, detailed knowledge of a species' habitat and population ecology from one place and time might have little relevance to other locations or periods.
