Brown-headed nuthatch was selected for the Designing Sustainable Landscapes project of the North Atlantic LCC (https://scholarworks.umass.edu/designing_sustainable_landscapes/) due to its associations with mature pine forests and pine plantations within the Coastal Plain and Piedmont in the Mid-Atlantic region of the NALCC. The Landscape Capability (LC) index integrates habitat capability, prevalence and climate suitability into a single index that reflects the relative capacity of a site to support the species.
