Comparison of Bird Use of Adjacent Wetlands in Southwestern Wyoming


We investigated bird use of adjacent riparian habitats at the Bear River State Park and old ice ponds in southwestern Wyoming. We collected habitat data to show how common species utilize the two areas. Our results show that common species on both sites use various combinations of vegetative components and emphasizes the importance of maintaining woody vegetation on these sites. Because the vegetative composition on our study sites is similar to that along other major rivers in Wyoming, our results should be applicable to other riparian communities at similar elevations.
