Condor Editor Pick - New Details on Nest Preferences of a Declining Sparrow

Recommended Posts

Theory says that birds should choose nest sites that minimize their risk of predation, but studies often fail to show a connection between nest site selection and nest survival. Understanding these relationships can be key for managing declining species, and a new study from The Condor: Ornithological Applications explores the nest site preferences of Bachman’s Sparrow, a vulnerable songbird dependent on regularly burned longleaf pine forests in the southeastern U.S. Read the press release at https://americanornithologypubsblog.org/2017/05/31/new-details-on-nest-preferences-of-a-declining-sparrow/.
