DescriptionIn addition to providing numerous important ecological functions, bottomland hardwoods provide important habitat for many wildlife species (Harris 1989), particularly many forest interior birds (Hamel and others 1996). National monitoring efforts showed nationwide declines for many forest bird species, including forest-dependent neotropical migrants (Johnston and Hagan 1992). However, our understanding of how these birds respond to natural disturbance is limited.
