Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Density and Fledging Success of Grassland Birds in Conservation Reserve
Program Fields in North Dakota and West-central Minnesota
I appreciate the hard work of my field assistants: J. Bates, B. Bolduan, D. Burt,
L. Cox, J. Evanoff, S. Garcia, A. Halvorson, T. Hansted, J. Henderson, B. Hockenberry,
L. Hoxtell, L. Huff, J. Hughes, T. Jenni, L. Joyal, D. Laird, K. MacDonald, G.
Machart, R. Manson, W. Meeks, M. Moodie, K. Mullen, H. Muller, S. Norland, and
C. Shoemaker, E. Sincox, D. Storm, P. Sweet, L. Quinlan, W. Widdowson, and J.
Woleslagle. I also appreciate the cooperation and congeniality of P. Arnold, G.
Bober, C. Luna, and A. Radtke of the USFWS. K. Krueger and others in offices of
the Farm Service Agency and Natural Resources Conservation Service were helpful.
The study would have been impossible without the cooperation of numerous landowners
who allowed us to study birds on their CRP fields. B. Bowen assisted with data
analysis. J. Lokemoen shared ideas on study techniques. I appreciate the helpful
comments on this paper by B. Bowen, L. Igl, and E. Klaas.
