The Boreal and Taiga Plains ecoprovinces of northeastern British Columbia (Demarchi 1993) are home to a group of warblers and other songbirds that are rare or unrecorded from other parts of the province. The species distribution, abundance, and habitat requirements of this group are poorly known. A field survey of northeastern habitats was conducted from late June through late July of 1992. The purpose of this survey was to map the distribution of selected species of relatively restricted warblers, vireos, and sparrows, determine their relative abundance, and define some of their habitat requirements. Due to logistic limitations, species of warblers and vireos were given priority over sparrows. Known locations were examined and the habitat was defined in terms of major vascular plant species composition, canopy characteristics and other features of habitat structure. By defining generalized models of bird species habitat types, new locations that corresponded to the models were then surveyed. Locations that
