Boreal Landbird Monitoring
The design and implementation of bird monitoring programs across the vast and largely remote boreal region is challenging. Traditional volunteer- and road-based approaches do not adequately sample all locations or habitat types, and are subject to various biases. Off-road point-count surveys are superior in some respects, but extensive and repeated surveys are more expensive and few long-term datasets of that kind exist.
In collaboration with our partners, BAM continues to develop methods and research to support boreal landbird monitoring. Explore these projects below:
