Effects of forest edges on Ovenbird demography in a managed forest landscape.

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 8


We studied the reproductive ecology of Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapillus) for 3 years in a primarily forested landscape in northern Wisconsin. We searched for and monitored nests in large, closed-canopy northern hardwood forests adjacent to recent clearcuts (<6 years old) and measured the effect of proximity to edge on nest success, clutch size, and breeding pair density.
