AMJV Partners Release Cerulean Warbler Best Management Practice Guide

Cerulean Warbler management guidelines for enhancing breeding habitat in Appalachian forests are completed and available to download from the AMJV Library. Titled Cerulean Warbler Management Guidelines for Appalachian Hardwood Forests, this document provides land managers in the Appalachian Region with recommendations for retaining and enhancing habitat for Cerulean Warblers and a diverse bird community based on the best available science. Recommendations are intended for use by federal, state, and private foresters, biologists, and other land managers.

These management guidelines are based to a large extent on the recently completed Cooperative Cerulean Warbler Forest Management Project but also incorporate relevant findings from other research projects. Guidelines apply primarily to upland oak-dominated habitats where the majority of the research reported was completed. The AMJV will also have on hand a limited number of hardcopies.
