Data Extent

Northern Arizona, USA, post-wildfire avian data: western bluebird detection/non-detection and banding data

Western bluebird (Sialia mexicana) population data were collected in northern Arizona, USA, following two wildfires (Hochderferr Fire, Horseshoe Fire) that occurred in May and June 1996. This is a data subset consisting of 8 years of bird data collection post-wildfire (1999-2006) and 3 years of vegetation data (2002, 2005, 2006), and is part of a larger long-term data set. Data consist of detection/non-detection data from point counts, adult banding data collecting at mist-nets and nest surveys, habitat covariates (live tree basal area, snag basal area, burn severity), and sampling covariates (time since fire, transect line, point-count data observer, sex of banded adult bird).
