Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
The Midwest Secretive Marshbird Working Group met on August 5, 2014 at the Midwest Bird Conservation and Monitoring Workshop in Port Washington, WI.
The goal for this meeting was to continue our work to better coordinate marsh bird monitoring, research, and conservation within the Midwest by 1) communicating what we have accomplished and progress toward ongoing projects, 2) identifying key products to be produced by the working group that facilitate conservation activities, and 3) discussing opportunities to coordinate the collection of marsh bird habitat data.
