    Description

    We 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.
