Abstract: Non-game bird diversity and abundance on Resthaven Wildlife Area, Erie County, Ohio, managed by the Ohio Division of Wildlife, were compared with those on a nearby agricultural area (Erlin), Sandusky County, Ohio, during June 1974. Of non-game birds, 67 species were recorded at Resthaven and 53 species at Erlin. Mean number of species per census route was 52 at Resthaven and 41 at Erlin. Twenty-two species were significantly more abundant at Resthaven and 8 were significantly more abundant at Erlin. Plant diversity indices for Resthaven and Erlin were 18.32 and 8.65, respectively. Habitat quality was responsible for greater diversity and abundance of birds at Resthaven, which contained nearly twice as much edge between dissimilar habitats as Erlin.
