Keys to Henslow’s Sparrow (Centronyx henslowii) management are providing large grasslands with tall, dense, herbaceous vegetation and well-developed litter; avoiding habitat disturbances during the breeding season; and controlling plant succession. Henslow’s Sparrows have been reported to use habitats with less than or equal to (≤) 122 centimeters (cm) average vegetation height, 25–80 cm visual obstruction reading, 35–51 percent grass cover, 10–55 percent forb cover, ≤2 percent shrub cover, ≤5 percent bare ground, 15–30 percent litter cover, and less than 13 cm litter depth.
