This report focuses on results of the songbird and small mammal study components and highlights the results of the other surveys. The reader is referred to details presented in unpublished annual progress reports. Small mammal species richness and abundance varied between years and between mature and harvested stands. Multi-year population cycles and stochastic weather events likely accounted for much of the between-year variation.

Only Deer Mouse and Meadow Vole were
