Survival of fledgling Hooded Warblers (Wilsonia citrina
) in small and large forest fragments.
For example, in American redstart (Setophaga ruticilla), black- throated blue warbler (Dendroica caerulescans), Kentucky warbler (Oporornis formosus), hooded warbler (Wilsonia citrina
), yellow warbler (Dendroica petechia) etc.
The high density of saplings and shrubs in the understory layer of the regrowth forest patches also provided habitat for a high number of understory-associated bird species such as the Kentucky warbler (Oporornis formosus),hooded warbler (Wilsonia citrina
), and American redstart (Setophaga ruticilla).
This list of forest songbirds includes, but is not limited to, the following: Eastern Wood Pewee (Contopus virens), Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mastelina), Cerulean Warbler (Dendroica cerulea), Black-and-white Warbler (Mniotilta varia), Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocappilus), Kentucky Warbler (Oporornis formosus), Hooded Warbler (Wilsonia citrina
, and Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea).
The abundance of Neotropical migrants, such as the Red-eyed vireos (Vireo olivaceus), Hooded warblers (Wilsonia citrina
) and Ovenbirds (Seiurus aurocapillus) has dropped by 50 percent or more in the span of several decades (Sauer 2000).
Densities of three species, Hooded Warbler (Wilsonia citrina
), Yellow-Breasted Chat (Icteria virens) and White-Eyed Vireo (Vireo griseus) were compared using mist net data from the two treatment areas.
