Effects of Fuelwood Cutting on Birds in Southern New-England
Journal or Book Title
JOURNAL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT
Cut stands supported more individuals and more bird species. Bird community composition in cut stands was significantly different from uncut stands. Open-ground birds and most cavity-nesting species preferred and dominated uncut stands. Intense fuelwood harvesting reduced the value of the habitat for cavity-nesting species. Overall abundance of cavity nesters was low on all cut areas. Similarities in bird communities exist between recently cut, older-cut, and uncut stands. Regardless of time elapsed since cutting, stands harvested at similar intensities had similar bird communities and were significantly different from those cut at other levels.
