Buffer zones In addition to providing quality habitat, it is sometimes necessary to
arrange the landscape elements in a way that protects birds from disturbance.
Whenever people are nearby, birds experience stress. Even though a bird may
not be bothered enough to fly away from a person, it is still stressed. Larger birds,

sometimes cat less, or give less food to their young offspring, both of which result
in lower ...

More than a decade ago, John O'Neill asked me if I would write a text to
