Several key wildlife species or species groups are being monitored by Western Forest Products Inc. as part of the biodiversity effectiveness monitoring program in Englewood Forest Operation?s Tree Farm License (TFL) 37. Monitoring (in various capacities) of songbirds and woodpeckers was initiated in 2003 and has continued through 2007. Specific project objectives in 2007 were:
1) Monitor songbirds and woodpeckers in cutblocks which have treed retention patches (these patches were previously surveyed for forest structure, see Objective #3 below).
2) Map and compare bird locations (based on the above surveys) in relation to patch locations in cutblocks.
3) Correlate songbird occurrence information (presence/not detected) with retention patch characteristics (size, location, forest structure).
