Our objectives were to: (1) use robust design models where closed-captures were treated as mixtures to obtain quantitative estimates of species richness that accounted for variation and heterogeneity in detection probabilities among species and habitats; (2) evaluate bird community dynamics by estimating the probabilities of local extinction and turnover, the number of colonizing species, and rates of change in species richness; (3) compare changes in species richness within grazed and restored riparian sites over time; and (4) use qualitative methods to examine if changes in avian nesting guilds occurred in response to livestock exclusion.
