The Gray Flycatcher (Empidonax wrightii) was found to only occur as a breeding species in WA in the 1970s. Since then, no detailed information existed on habitats used by Gray Flycatchers for breeding. To address this information gap, we initiated as study to investigate Gray Flycatcher nest survival in managed ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forests.
Assess Gray Flycatcher nest survival and determine if temporal or spatial factors influence nest success.
We completed this project and published the findings in the Journal of Field Ornithology.
