Wisconsin Bird Monitoring

Main Project Information
Presented By Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative
Goal monitor owls, nightjars, marshbirds, and other birds in WI
Task conduct bird surveys along predetermined routes
Where Wisconsin, United States of America

The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative (WBCI) recognizes the need for sound bird monitoring programs, and recently its Research and Monitoring Committee identified several key bird groups whose populations previously were not adequately monitored in the state. To fill these gaps and help identify species at risk, three new statewide surveys that focus on owls, nightjars, and secretive marshbirds were initiated in the past several years.

Volunteers can participate in one or more of the surveys.
