Species like the Black-backed Woodpecker, Mountain Bluebird, and Lazuli Bunting are some of the many species that benefit from wildfire.
Some are transient visitors such as the American green-winged teal, the lazuli bunting and the belted kingfisher.
The lazuli bunting, blue with a cinnamon breast, is the indigo's counterpart in the West and the two hybridize where their ranges overlap.
Additionally, this area is unusual in having several species that are more typical of the Tamaulipan; these are the Blue grosbeak, Bell's vireo, MacGillivary's warbler and Lazuli bunting.
He closes his eyes and listens to bird songs, hoping especially to hear the sweet warbling of the lazuli bunting.
Greene has a special interest in lazuli buntings. For the past two summers he and his students at the University of Montana have studied these birds near the college.
He and his students have captured, banded, identified, and recorded the songs of 400 different lazuli buntings. Each bird's song is as individual as a fingerprint, allowing biologists to make an "acoustic fingerprint" - a computer song recording or sonogram that looks like sheet music - by which each individual bird can be positively identified.
According to historical data, cowbirds and lazuli buntings coexisted until relatively recently.
we included the ash-throated flycatcher (Myiarchus cinerascens), western kingbird (Tyrannus verticalis), warbling vireo (Vireo gilvus), Lucy's warbler (Oreothlypis luciae), western tanager (Piranga ludoviciana), chipping sparrow (Spizella passerina), lark sparrow (Chondestes grammacus), lark bunting (Calamospiza melanocorys), black-headed grosbeak (Pheucticus melanocephalus), lazuli bunting (Passerina amoena), Bullock's oriole (Icterus bullockii), and lesser goldfinch (Carduelis psaltria).
only one species, lazuli bunting, showed significantly higher rate of detection in desert scrub than in at least one other habitat, whereas five species showed significantly higher rates of detection in grasslands than in at least one other habitat.
For all species pooled, significantly higher rates of detection were recorded in grasslands in 2007 than in 2008, and this was the case for lazuli buntings and lesser goldfinches.
To study western North America's lazuli buntings, Passerina amoena, researchers banded nearly 200 males vying for nesting territories in Montana.
