Lazuli Bunting

Lazuli Bunting
Forest Type: Klamath Mountains Mixed Conifer and Mixed Hardwood-Conifer Forests
Habitat Attribute: Post-Wildfire

Habitat Objectives
Sites: Maintain post-wildfire vegetation, especially deciduous shrub/tree vegetation, where opportunities exist or can be managed for with <20% live tree cover and a shrub-herbaceous (includes bare ground) cover ratio that is within a range of 30-70% for each parameter.

Habitat Conservation Strategies
– Discontinue use of herbicides for deciduous tree and shrub control for species associated with deciduous vegetation in post-fire habitat.
– Restore fire as a management tool where ecologically appropriate.
– Maintain areas of unaltered post-fire habitat where regeneration can occur naturally.
– Retain and encourage the development of shrubs within post-fire habitat
– Minimize the impact to shrubs during management activities in post-fire habitat
