Nashville Warbler

Nashville Warbler
Forest Type: Klamath Mountains Mixed Conifer and Mixed Hardwood-Conifer Forests
Habitat Attribute: Dense Shrub Understory

Habitat Objectives
Sites: Where ecologically appropriate (e.g., wetter sites), maintain or provide >40% understory shrub layer cover.

Habitat Conservation Strategies
– Promote understory growth through natural disturbance or management that breaks up the forest canopy yet still maintains the dominance of a mid- or late-successional forest.
– Discontinue use of herbicides for deciduous tree and shrub control.
