Description: This chapter reviews studies on songbird ecology conducted in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado; studies from outside this region are mentioned when they bear direct relevance to our primary region. The studies were conducted in sites where ponderosa pine occurred at least in equal coverage with other trees. We also include studies conducted in pine-oak (pine predominant) or oak-pine (oak predominant) woodlands of southeastern Arizona and Southwestern New Mexico. Our review begins with population studies, including research on distribution, abundance, and trends in population numbers. We then discuss the various roles of birds in the ponderosa pine forest. Next we cover the multifaceted topic of avian natural history and habitat preferences, including use of vegetation and special habitat features, nest predation, foraging habits, and migration habits. We also review the prioritization systems for identifying species of special research and management concern.

Keywords: Pinus ponderosa, ponderosa pine, Southwest, songbirds
