USDA Forest Service General Technical Report WO-1. From the Preface- "Non-game birds are a neglected ecological and recreational resource. Managers have know that birds eat insects and seeds and that some people like to watch birds. But generally nongame birds have not been seriously considered in decisions on land management. Scientists, on the other hand, have long studied birds as an occupation or avocation, but they have seldom related their studies to land management activities. The recent increase in environmental awareness and dramatic changes in patterns of wildlife-related recreation are indicators that this Symposium was long overdue."
