Title: Are Forest Songbirds Declining? Status Assessment from the Southern Appalachians and Northeastern Forests

Author: Franzreb, Kathleen E.; Rosenberg, Kenneth V.;

Date: 1997

Source: Trans. 62nd No. Am. Wildl. and Natur. Resour: Conf.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Reported declines in populations of migratory songbirds in the eastern United States (Robbins et al. 1989, Askins et al. 1990, Hagan and Johnston 1992) have created a great deal of concern among researchers, land managers and conservationists, resulting in the formation of the large bird-conservation consortium, Partners In Flight. Among the causes implicated in these declines are destruction of habitat on tropical wintering grounds, urban development on migratory stopover habitat, and fmgmentation and loss of breeding habitat in North America. Much confusion remains, however, concerning which species of birds are declining, the significance of those declines and whether declines are occurring throughout a species' range (e.g.,Askins 1993, James et al. 1996, Villard and Maurer 1996).
