From 1996 to 1999, apparent annual survival of male Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapillus) was compared in forest fragments created by forestry (n = 3) and agriculture (n = 14) to plots in continuous boreal forest of central Saskatchewan (n = 3). For 398 male Ovenbirds, Cormack-Jolly-Seber models...
Effects of Habitat Fragmentation on Pairing Success of Ovenbirds: Importance of Male Age and Floater BehaviorDownload
Between 1996 and 1998, we compared pairing success of territorial male Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapillus) in forest fragments created by forestry (n 5 3) and agriculture (n 5 10) to contiguous forest plots (n 5 3) in the southern boreal mixedwood forest of central Saskatchewan. The percentage of...
Movement Patterns of Adult Male Ovenbirds during the Post-Fledging Period in Fragmented and Forested Boreal LandscapesDownload
Movement of forest songbirds among isolated forest patches following breeding represents an important but poorly understood component of landscape ecology and metapopulation theory. Using radio-telemetry, we followed 44 male Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapillus) during the post-fledging period to...
Short-Term Effects of Timber Harvest on Abundance, Territory Characteristics, and Pairing Success of Ovenbirds in Riparian Buffer StripsDownload
In managed forests, riparian buffer strips typically are maintained to protect water quality. If properly designed, buffer strips also may act as wildlife reserves. However, forest managers have lacked the information to develop standards for buffer strips to maximize benefits for wildlife...
