Abstract

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.
