    Description

    Our goal is to understand the repercussions of two different forest management techniques on Neotropical migrant birds in the heavily forested landscape of the Missouri Ozarks. Our objectives are to determine breeding densities of forest birds under even-aged and uneven-aged management regimes and to determine the effects of these practices on songbird demographics. Our methods included spot mapping, nest monitoring, and mist-netting and banding. Analyses of our pre-treatment data show some variation both spatially and temporally, but do suggest that we have adequate baseline data for future comparisons. The data will allow us to see the immediate avian response to cutting, although decades and subsequent cutting cycles will be needed to evaluate the complete response. They also will allow us to examine avian population demographics on a scale that is unsurpassed for migrant songbirds.
