DescriptionWe evaluated the changes in the bird community in relation to six disturbance treatments in the William B. Bankhead National Forest, AL. The study design is randomized complete block with a factorial arrangement of three thinning levels [no thin, 11 m²/ha residual basal area (BA), and 17 m²/ha residual BA] and two burn treatments (burn and no burn), with three replications. We collected data from pre- and post-treatment avian line-transect surveys. We found that the silvicultural treatments appear to create habitat for early successional bird species.
