–199.

            A statistical analysis of preliminary breeding bird atlas data collected during late 1980s, showing four

        Macon and Smith counties were unrepresented by this community of birds, which possesses "somewhat
        lower than average numbers of species and mid-elevation forest species such as the Solitary [Blue-headed]
        Vireo (V. solitarius) and Black-throated Green Warbler (D. virens)."

        USGS quadrangle) comprising Tennessee with most of the focus of attention on 700 priority blocks. The project
        began in 1986 and continued to 1991.Coverage within the Upper Cumberland Region was roughly as complete as
        coverage elsewhere in the state.

Nicholson, C. P. 2004. Ecology of Cerulean Warbler in the Cumberland Mountains of East
        Tennessee
. Dissertation Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville.

            Easily the most thorough and important work devoted to one sp. in the Region's ornithological history. That the
        species involved is of special conservation concern as a declining Neotropical migrant breeding in the Region
        makes this work of even greater value than it would have been otherwise. A slightly edited version of the Abstract
        provided in the work follows: ". . . Describes the distribution, local breeding densities and population trends,
        breeding biology, and habitat selection of the CERW (Dendroica cerulea) in the Cumberland Mountains of
        [Anderson, Campbell, Morgan, and Scott counties], Tennessee.  Point counts were conducted during [3] years at
        [6] study sites [including Frozen Head State Park, Wilson Mt., Little Brushy Mt., and Lone Mt.--all Morgan Co.--and
        UT Cumberland Mt. Forestry Station, Scott Co.].  CERW was detected at 50% of the point counts [n = 450+] and
        was [6th] most frequently encountered bird.  Spot-map censuses were conducted on [5] plots at [3] study sites.
        CERW occurred on all census plots at an average density of 84.9 pairs/100 ha.  Average density on individual plots
        ranged from 21.3 to 137.6 pairs/100 ha. Although population trends on the census plots were not uniform, there was
        an overall decline during the late 1990s [emphasis added].
            "The breeding biology of the CERW was studied by observing courtship behavior and nest-building, and [by]
        monitoring . . . 52 nests.  Female CERWs built nests, incubated eggs, and brooded nestlings.  Females fed
        nestlings more than males [fed nestlings]; the rate at which males and females removed fecal sacs from the nest
        did not differ.  Mean clutch size was 3.7+/- 0.13 SE.  For . . .1996-1999, nest success, measured by the Mayfield
        method, averaged 0.3708; the daily nest success rate averaged 0.9685+/- 0.0057 SE.  The major cause of nest
        failure appeared to be weather events, including presumed nestling starvation during unusually cool and wet
        weather.
            "Nests were built in 12 taxa of deciduous trees.  Although there were some plot-specific preferences [selecting for
        black cherry, sugar maple, and yellow poplar; and avoiding red maple], most tree taxa were selected in proportion
        to their availability. Nests averaged 15.9 m +/- 0.81 SE (range 7.0-36.3 m) above ground.  Nest trees averaged 23.6
        m +/- 0.90 SE (range 10.2-42.2 m) tall and 39.6 cm +/- 2.53 SE (range 12.3-76.2 cm) in diameter at breast height.
            "Habitat characteristics were sampled at nest sites, territory sites, and random sites on census plots, and at
        point count locations. Basal area was consistently greater, and both shrub cover and canopy cover consistently
        less, at nest sites than at random plots, at territory sites than at random sites, and at nest sites than at territory
        sites.  Point count locations where CERWs were present had larger diameter live trees and more sapling cover than
        locations where the warbler was absent.  Logistic regression models successfully classified over 70% of sites on
        census plots but were less successful in predicting CERW presence at point count locations."

Palmer-Ball, B. L., Jr., 1996. The Kentucky Breeding Bird Atlas. The University Press of
        Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky.

            Presents results for 154 species of breeding birds, 146 of which were confirmed breeders in the state. Coverage
        was focused on 727 priority blocks that constitute roughly one-sixth of the area of the state; usually the center
        west block within each USGS quadrangle was surveyed; this degree of coverage held true within the Upper Cumberland
        Region as well as within the state.  Coverage began in 1985 and continued to 1991 with most coverage of rural areas
        occurring in the later years of the project. Among the first generation of state breeding bird atlases produced in North
        America, this one must rank as somewhat middling at best, covering only about 17% of the state.  The graphic
        presentation of the abundance of the species is based on rather subjective criteria rather than quantitative data, while
        the actual abundance graphs are misrepresentative of abundance because a somewhat questionable decision was
        made to use the subjective block abundance data to represent entire quadrangle-sized areas; furthermore, for common
        species the abundance shading completely obliterates county outlines, making it difficult to know exactly where the
        abundance gradients are located.  All in all, this atlas, while far better than no atlas, leaves much to be desired.
