This study looks into the effectiveness of protecting riparian forest strips on forest birds. We characterized bird communities of 28 sites in an oil palm‐forest mosaic in Sabah, Malaysia using 6,104 encounters from 840 point counts. Results show that riparian reserve width, forest quality, and amount of forest cover are important in supporting rich bird communities, especially for forest specialists.
