Goals and Objectives:
- Quantify bird use of 4 habitat types that have been or might be established on managed land in the Spring Run Complex.
- Monitor vegetation composition and structure in each habitat.
- Estimate nest success, nestling growth rate, and brood survival of common bird species using each habitat type.
- Measure invertebrate populations in the three habitat types.
