Cerulean Warbler Forest Management Project

Initiated: 2005     Status: Completed in 2010

The Cerulean Warbler project was initiated to allow the scientific and management communities to test forestry methods and use experimental harvesting of timber to enhance Cerulean Warbler habitat. These sky-blue birds inhabit open canopy, mature forests in the Appalachians and are often found around ridges and clustered near knobs and bluffs. By studying the response of ceruleans and the overall bird community to various harvesting treatments, AMJV and its partners can provide land managers and biologists with recommendations for enhancing habitat for ceruleans as well as a diverse bird community based on the best available science.  

This project led to the development of a Cerulean Warbler Management Guidelines document.
