#137 | How Bird Species Respond to Forest Management


Exploring forest management and its impacts on various species of birds, both game and non-game, with conservation biologist Darin J. McNeil.

Joined by Darin J. McNeil, a conservation biologist, we discuss at length his research on forest management and its impacts to both game and non-game bird species. Born and raised an outdoor enthusiast in Michigan, D.J.’s passion for the outdoors ultimately evolved into the study and research of wildlife conservation. Additionally, he is an upland bird hunter currently developing and training his first bird dog, an English Setter named Maple.

About | Darin J. McNeil
“I study the ecology and conservation of native wildlife with a particular focus on species of conservation concern. I enjoy working on projects that push the boundaries of ecological theory, while also bearing direct application to active conservation challenges. The majority of my work involves quantifying population metrics (e.g., occupancy, abundance, survival, reproduction, etc.) and relating these metrics to components of habitat quality (e.g., microhabitat, landscape, etc.).”
