Abstract

Woodland birds are increasingly threatened by the impacts of environmental change. As the global population and economy grow, we continue to modify habitat for human use, reducing available nesting and foraging opportunities for birds. In addition, post-European occupation has led to the introduction of alien species, like cats (Felis catus), and the expansion of generalist species, like corvids, resulting in increased predation and competition for vulnerable bird species. To successfully preserve habitats, manage invasive species and conserve both endangered and common-but-declining bird species we need pre-emptive and innovative management strategies that can be implemented now.
