Daily survival was higher in the egg stage than the nestling stage for Acadian flycatcher, blue-gray gnatcatcher, and Eastern wood-pewee but lower in the egg stage for prairie warbler (Fig.
Many avian species require early successional habitat for several components of their life history (e.g., yellow-breasted chat [Icteria virens], prairie warbler, and northern bobwhite [Colinus virginianus]).
In May, he located CBG's second-ever prairie warbler. The site surrendered a white-faced ibis for Amanda Tichacek.
The seven species were ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus; OVEN), red-eyed vireo (Vireo olivaceus; REVI), hooded warbler (Wilsonia citrina; HOWA), blue-gray gnatcatcher (Polioptila caerulea; BGGN), tufted titmouse (Baeohrphus bicolor; TUTI), indigo bunting (Passerina cyanea; INBU), and prairie warbler (Dendroica discolor, PRAW), and represented a continuum from mature forest species to early successional species.
The presence of several species of birds - including the perky prairie warbler, the buzzy blue-winged warbler and the stunningly beautiful indigo bunting - is the long-awaited result of a conservation project that has been a collective effort of area agencies and groups, and seeing the birds arrive to nest was a benchmark that the project has so far been successful.
In this paper, we examine the spatial pattern of change in the breeding populations of two species of wood warblers (Emberizidae, Parulinae), the Prairie Warbler (Dendroica discolor) and Cerulean Warbler (Dendroica cerulea), in which long-term continental declines have been reported by the BBS (Sauer and Droege 1992).
Beyond that, in the disturbed area we would expect to see an increase in shrub land birds, like the chestnut-sided warbler, prairie warbler, brown thrasher, Eastern towhee - all species that benefit from the new forest growth.
Focal grass-shrubland species historically associated with glades, such as Bachman's sparrow (Aimophila aestivalis), prairie warbler (Dendroica discolor) and field sparrow (Spizella pusilla) (see Probasco, 1978; Hardin et al., 1982; Thompson and DeGraaf, 2001), are Tier I species of conservation priority in the CHBCR (Fitzgerald et al., 2003).
Three high-demand species seemed to pop up everywhere in 2017: neotropic cormorant, merlin and prairie warbler. Maybe, just maybe, they are becoming more common in this region.
These remnant plant communities provide habitat for several early-successional song bird species, such as prairie warblers and Henslow's sparrow.
The barrens also attract songbirds like eastern towhees, prairie warblers and indigo buntings, and raptors like great homed owls and red-tailed hawks.
"Golden-winged warblers, chestnut-sided warblers, black-throated blue and prairie warblers, Acadian and alder flycatchers-all of these are birds in decline," says McAuley.
