We observed that certain upperstory bird species, such as dollarbirds, minivets, and parakeets tended to be concentrated at the forest edge due to the proximity of different habitats (i.e., vegetation structure and floristic composition), whereas others (i.e., woodpeckers, barbets, broadbills, pigeons, and drongos) were concentrated in the interior.
