Mountain Plovers nest in prairie habitat used historically by large herbivore assemblages including bison, pronghorn, and prairie dogs. Mountain plover nest survival in relation to prairie dog and fire dynamics in shortgrass steppe. We studied the nesting response of the mountain plover (Charadrius montanus), a grassland bird that nests on prairie dog colonies, to plague-driven dynamics of prairie dog colonies at three sites in the western Great Plains. The mountain plover (Charadrius montanus) is a medium-sized ground bird in the plover family (Charadriidae). Restoring historical disturbance regimes to enhance habitat for grassland birds can conflict with livestock production goals and has been controversial because of uncertainty in the frequency and pattern of different disturbances prior to European settlement.

Mountain plover nests are on the ground and often found near active prairie dog towns. Menu. Intensive cattle grazing at twice the recommended stocking rate during spring (Mar–May) or summer (May–Oct) for 6 years produced significantly less bare soil than burns and prairie dog colonies, particularly following years with average or above‐average precipitation.

The Mountain Plover is a species of xeric tablelands with sparse, low vegetation, especially where those landscapes hosted native herbivores such as prairie dogs (Cynomys spp. Plovers usually nest on sites where vegetation is sparse or absent, conditions that can be created by herbivores, including domestic livestock and prairie dogs. Mountain Plover (Charadrius montanus) was petitioned for listing as Threatened under the Federal Endangered Species Act in 1999 1. Both prescribed burning and increased size and distribution of black‐tailed prairie dog colonies appear to be effective and complementary means to manage for mountain plover breeding habitat in shortgrass steppe. 0000004280 00000 n Working with private landowners.

Mountain plover breeding habitat includes short-grass prairie and shrub-steppe landscapes; dryland, cultivated farms; and prairie dog towns. The Mountain Plover is a medium–sized shorebird, about the size of a Killdeer, but with longer legs and more erect posture. Thus, intensive cattle grazing did not substitute for prairie dog grazing or fire in terms of effects on vegetation structure and mountain plover habitat.
