Ashland Bird Conservation Area

Ashland has relatively large areas of early successional habitats, including grassland and shrub land. There are also forested areas, and limestone barrens. These habitats support a diversity of early successional bird species, including short-eared owl (endangered), Henslow's sparrow (threatened), sedge wren (threatened), northern harrier (threatened) and upland sandpiper (threatened).
