Cavity-nesting Birds in Chicago's Cemeteries
Cemeteries comprise only a small part of Chicago's urban forest, but to wildlife they offer resources that are difficult to find in the surrounding hardscape. One resource is dead and dying trees (“snags”), on which cavity-nesting birds depend for nesting and foraging. In Chicago’s cemeteries we assessed snag availability as well as other aspects of habitat quality as relevant to cavity-nesting birds.
