Abstract Habitat preferences for many woodpeckers are poorly known in many regions of North America. Seven woodpecker species use forested wetlands in peninsular Florida, yet no study has examined habitat use by woodpeckers in these forests. From September 1991 to August 1992, we used unlimited-distance point counts to sample birds at 32 stations in 2 forested wetland types (spring-fed and blackwater) in central Florida. We documented 1415 visual or aural woodpecker detections. Melanerpes… 

Woodpecker Densities in the Big Woods of Arkansas

Abstract Sightings of the now-feared-extinct ivory-billed woodpecker Campephilus principalis in 2004 in the Big Woods of Arkansas initiated a series of studies on how to best manage habitat for this

Palm snags are a critical nesting resource for woodpeckers in an urbanized tropical region

Critical resources for birds nesting in cities can support populations in spite of the challenges imposed by urbanization, and the identification of such resources can shed light on how species are

Habitat use of woodpeckers in the Big Woods of eastern Arkansas

Abstract The Big Woods of eastern Arkansas contain some of the highest densities of woodpeckers recorded within bottomland hardwood forests of the southeastern United States. A better understanding...

WOODPECKER ABUNDANCE AND HABITAT USE IN THREE FOREST TYPES IN EASTERN TEXAS

The Hairy Woodpecker (P. villosus) was most frequently encountered in areas of recent disturbance in the mixed pine-hardwood forests, especially in fall, and vocal imitation of a Barred Owl (Strix varia) increased the number of woodpecker de- tections by 71%.

Snag Condition and Woodpecker Foraging Ecology in a Bottomland Hardwood Forest

-we studied woodpecker foraging behavior, snag quality, and surrounding habitat in a bottomland hardwood forest in the Stephen F. Austin Experimental Forest from December 1984 through November 1986.

BREEDING BIRD ABUNDANCE IN BOTTOMLAND HARDWOOD FORESTS: HABITAT, EDGE, AND PATCH SIZE EFFECTS

Abstract We studied breeding bird communities in extensive bottomland hardwood forests along the lower Roanoke River in North Carolina during 1992 and 1993. We documented a rich avian community and

Habitat Selection by Birds of Riparian Communities: Evaluating Effects of Habitat Alterations

The objectives were to quantify factors critical in nest-site and habitat selection by breeding birds of riparian communities over a range of habitat types and to use the results to evaluate effects of habitat perturbations on avian communities.

Breeding Bird Assemblages Inhabiting Riparian Buffer Strips in Newfoundland, Canada

Compared breeding bird assemblages in undisturbed shoreline habitats with those in 20-50-m-wide riparian buffer strips in balsam fir forests on insular Newfoundland, Canada, total avian abundance was higher along buffer strips than undist disturbed shorelines because of a greater abundance of ubiquitous species and species associated with clearcut edge habitats.

Nongame Bird Use of Habitat in Central Appalachian Riparian Forests

Management or protection of riparian zones often is justified on the basis of higher bird species richness and abundance found in these sites, but data did not support this, and Acadian flycatchers and Louisiana waterthrushes were dependent on riparian habitats, and such habitats should be protected.

Bird Species Associated with Riparian Woodland in Fragmented, Temperate‐Deciduous Forest

Abstract: Forest area is known to be correlated with bird‐species diversity. Most researchers of riparian forest avifauna have used riparian woodland width as an index of forest area. We conducted

We investigated the microhabitat preferences and relative abundances of 13 species of woodpecker in Sungai Lalang Forest Reserve, West Malaysia. The availability of suitable microhabitat corresponded
