Foresters for the Birds’ practices were recently covered under Vermont’s tax incentive program, so landowners can benefit from managing their woods to protect targeted species. Now more than a million acres of private forest—about half the state’s forests—are enrolled in the program. Over the past 20 to 30 years, biologists have been documenting the alarming declines of many Neotropical migrant bird populations. Habitat loss and fragmentation, caused by development and other human activities, are the main causes of population declines. Forest birds of the Northeast are the group for which population declines are the best.
Current Research. Current studies include the effects of habitat restoration on breeding prairie warblers, habitat-specific abundance and survival of wintering migrant songbirds in the Caribbean, Honduras and Belize, identifying area thresholds for breeding shrubland birds and native bees in gaps, migratory movements and stopover ecology of songbirds in the Gulf of Maine, .

For more than 5 million years, a rainbow of Neotropical migrant birds (tanagers, warblers, and orioles) has been embarking on epic annual migrations from breeding grounds in North America to the New World tropics. In Colombia, these wintering areas are a lot different now than they were just 50 years ago. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's (FWS) Division of Bird Habitat Conservation (DBHC) manages the NMBCA grants program and administers all grants. As a grant recipient, you are assigned a specific DBHC Grant Officer to help manage the grant and to monitor progress.

habitat for Neotropical migrants such as swallows, swifts, sapsuckers, small owls, kestrels, and wrens. They also provide homes for insects and other invertebrates that are food for many breeding Neotropical birds.
Studies suggest that larger diameter snags enhance both of these habitat features. (See extension bulletin MISCO "Managing Small. Managing Forest Habitats for Migrant Songbirds Hearing the song of a yellow-rumped warbler or an olive-sided flycatcher during the early morning hours is a sure sign that spring has arrived.
Many bird enthusiasts look forward to the annual return of birds we associate with the end of winter. "Ecology and Management of Neotropical Migratory Birds provides the best review yet of the scientific issues surrounding migrants."--Science "The 17 chapters of this book provide a detailed examination of ecology and management of neotropical migratory birdsOrnithologists and conservation biologists will be interested in this book /5(2).
An ambitious, comprehensive assessment of the current status of neotropical migratory birds in the USA, and the methods and strategies for conserving migrant populations. This book covers the full scope of the subject, with chapters reviewing and assessing the topics written as consensus documents by several of the leading workers.
This book is an attempt to discuss the problem in full scope. It presents an ambitious, comprehensive assessment of the current status of neotropical migratory birds in the U.S., and the methods and strategies used to conserve migrant populations.

From early April to mid-May, buntings, cuckoos, flycatchers, orioles, tanagers, thrushes, vireos, and warblers migrate from tropical countries in Central and South America and the Caribbean north to their breeding grounds in the United States (Figure 1).
These birds are called neotropical migrants. nightjars, a myriad of flycatchers, and a host of other neotropical migrants and resident songbirds.

Neotropical migrants are birds of the Western Hemisphere that migrate long distances from wintering grounds in the New World Tropics (or "Neotropics") to breeding grounds in North America.
The Neotropics are generally defined as the tropical regions of Mexico, and Central and South America that lie south of the Tropic of Cancer. Although many Neotropical migrants require attention throughout the Western Hemisphere, significant concern also exists for some temperate migrants (those species remaining primarily north of the tropics) and resident species that co-occur with Neotropical migrants in both breeding and wintering habitats (Hunter ).
In fact, Neotropical. working group will propose projects for neotropical migrants, as well as serve as a resource to the Biodiversity Coordinating Committee.

It comprises a variety of forest ecosystems, most notably upland oak-hickory and oak-pine forests, oak and pine savannas, old-growth hardwood and pine forests, and bottomland hardwood forests along the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi Rivers. These ecosystems are habitats for many neotropical migrant birds (songbirds).

Regulatory and Legal Considerations. Many species of Neotropical migrant songbirds have declined in recent decades, due in part to loss and fragmentation of stopover habitat. To properly manage forested landscapes for migrating songbirds, information is needed on how size and habitat structure of forest patches influence their use by migrants during stopover.
We conducted surveys of Neotropical migrant birds in eight oak Cited by: Chapter 2: Management Direction Eastern Shore of Virginia and Fisherman Island NWRs Management Focus Our management focus is to protect, restore, and enhance habitat for forest and shrub-dependent neotropical and temperate migratory birds, while promoting compatible wildlife-dependent recreational opportu-nities in support of these efforts.
Migrants in a lowland site were documented more often in early successional habitats than in primary forest, and no species were confined to mature forest habitats. The number of species and relative abundance of migrants in primary forest, however, increased with elevation up to about 1, m and decreased above that by:
