  1. N represents the total number of translocations; % Canopy cover represents the percentage of tree canopy cover for each translocation path; % Return represents the percentage of translocated individuals returned to capture sites. Values of % Canopy cover, Translocation distance, and Hours to return in the table are mean values with the minimum and maximum range in (). CACH represents Carolina Chickadee, NOCA represents Northern Cardinal, and TUTI represents Tufted Titmouse
