Forestlands Best Management Practices for Golden-winged Warblers

Golden-winged Warblers BMP

Combing through habitat literature and conducting two years of surveys for the presence of Golden-winged Warblers at forest stands, the AMJV and partners developed best management practices for providing breeding habitat for Golden-winged Warblers through timber harvesting.

Surveys were conducted across a range of timber harvest prescriptions in Pennsylvania and Maryland. The findings are intended for use by state and private foresters, biologists, and other land managers. Future work will continue to address management of other early successional habitat used by Golden-winged Warblers including old fields, reclaimed strip mines, scrub oak barrens, and aspen cuts.

This project led to the development of a Golden-winged Warblers Best Management Practices document.
