Bird species such as the American robin (Turdus migratorius), Bachman's sparrow (Aimophila aestivalis), common yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas), Eastern bluebird (Sialia sialis), and Northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) were detected only in treated stands, while Acadian flycatcher (Empidonax virescens), wood thrush (Hylocichla mustelina), yellow-billed cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus), and yellow-throated vireo (Vireo flavifrons) were detected only in untreated stands.
2004) found greater abundances of Bachman's sparrow and common yellowthroat in sites with mid-story removal.
Several species, including Bachman's sparrow (Aimophila aestivalis), northern bobwhite, eastern wood-pewee (Contopus virens), and indigo bunting respond favorably to RCW management practices such as prescribed burning and hardwood understory reduction (4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

It, too, is not alone in its population decline: the Bachman's sparrow
(Aimophila aestivalis), northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus), and field sparrow (Spizella pusilla) also are disappearing from rural landscapes.
The vegetation structure of Bachman's Sparrow
(Aimophila aestivalis) breeding habitat was studied in Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
Upland and flood-plain forests provide homes for birds as diverse as swallow-tailed kites, hairy woodpeckers, and Bachman's sparrows
