Hummingbirds & Fire: It’s Complicated

Hummingbirds & Fire: It’s Complicated

To inform future restoration efforts, we reviewed the known effects of fire and habitat management and restoration on hummingbirds in four key habitat types in North America. We examined seven species that most commonly occur west of the Rocky Mountains: Rufous (Selasphorus rufus), Calliope (Selasphorus calliope), Broad-tailed (Selasphorus platycercus), Costa’s (Calypte costae), Black-chinned (Archilochus alexandri), Anna’s (Calypte anna), and Allen’s (Selasphorus sasin).
