We evaluated bird foraging preferences for tree species during spring migration 2010-2013. We used the point center-quarter method to assess relative availability (tree importance values, IV) of tree species and tallied bird foraging observations on tree species as well as recording the phenophase of used trees on five 40 ha plots of contiguous floodplain forest between La Crosse, Wisconsin, and New Albin, Iowa, from 15 April through 1 June 2010-2013. We quantified bird preferences by comparing proportional use of tree species by each bird species to estimates of tree species availability (IV) for all four years and for each year separately. Bird data records contain the plot identity, date, time of the observation,...

Telemetry data for 59 Northern Leopard Frogs (Lithobates pipiens) breeding in ponds in Houston and Winona Counties, MN; 2001-2002. Agricultural intensification is causing declines in many wildlife species, including Northern Leopard Frogs (Lithobates pipiens). Specific information about frog movements, habitat selection, and sources of mortality can be used to inform conservation-focused land management and acquisition. We studied Northern Leopard Frogs in southeastern Minnesota, part of the Driftless Area ecoregion, characterized by hills and valleys and a mix of agriculture, forests, small towns and farmsteads. In this area, small farm ponds, originally built to control soil erosion are used by the species for...
