Abstract

The project's goals are to:

  • estimate home ranges during the breeding season, fall, and winter in recently burned and mountain pine beetle habitats;
  • document seasonal time budgets in recently burned and mountain pine beetle habitats;
  • compute general and forage resource selection models for black-backed woodpeckers;
  • develop a demographic population model that compares black-backed woodpecker demographics in burned and mountain pine beetle habitats of the Black Hills, SD.
