Why talk about burning and logging as though they are the same issue???
There is plenty of data to back up the idea that aboriginals practiced 'fire stick management.' Try 'The future eaters' by Flannery as a start.
Besides, why not look at the real issues behind declining bird abundances / species, namely clearing for agriculture, to grow crops, that we all eat.......

 We will need these types of data and arguments if we are to preserve bird habitats from those who want to burn and log the woodlands and forests in the name of 'hazard reduction'.
