Description: The declining populations of North American landbirds that migrate to the neotropics has attracted widespread attention from resource specialists. Documented declines in populations of eastern neotropical migrants, as well as habitat fragmentation on breeding grounds and habitat loss on wintering grounds have led researchers and resource managers to increase efforts to understand and effectively manage for the long-term conservation of these bird populations. Despite this attention, little is known on the population ecology of neotropical migrants inhabiting the western United States. One of the most important unknowns is the effects of sifvicultural treatments on these birds in the Rocky Mountains.
