The subject of managing forests for wildlife is being viewed from a new perspective, a perspective that has developed primarily as a result of studies of forest-interior birds. Forest-interior birds are dependent to a large extent on how forest lands are managed. They are essentially forest specialists and are not normally seen in open areas such as the suburbs, open fields or meadows. In Connecticut and other parts of the northeastern United States, most forest-interior birds are members of one taxonomic group, the wood warblers.
