Description: This chapter offers information on the status, distribution (by habitat type and seral stage), and basic life history for each of 208 species of birds that are found in the western Sierra Nevada. Many of the data came from the literature, altl)ough the professional ornithologists involved with this project drew upon extensive personal experience with birds in the Sierra Nevada. Knowledge of the details of bird life in the western Sierra Nevada is scanty at best. Pertinent data on life histories of many species simply were unavailable, while for a majority of those species for which data are presented, the studies cited were done somewhere other than in the western Sierra Nevada. Even assignment of species to habitat types and seral stages was based less on solid information available in the literature, and more on the field experience and judgment of those involved in the project. Therefore, the information reported here is subject to refinement, correction, and revision.
