Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
I just came back from the Marsh Bird Workshop in Yuma, AZ. It was extremely worthwhile. A workshop should probably mandatory for those who are planning to do Marsh Bird Surveys. The training was excellent. Marsh Bird surveys differ from standard point counts and the training will help those conducting surveys to avoid some pitfalls that lead to observer bias. Even those who have done Marsh Bird surveys for years should have workshop training using Conway's protocol.
