Steve, Have you found someone to do the S Wallingford route yet?  Are these driving route counts?  What is the protocol... EARLY start is one! (OK, I just read the info from PWRC - 24.5 miles at .6 mi intervals). What it is the exact route? How many count times between May and July?


From the specie list it looks like it must include wetlands.  However, I am very surprised about the Sedge Wren, Henslow (1966 only!) and Vesper Sparrows on list???

Subject: [VTBIRD] Looking for a Few Good Birders

Hello Birders;
The Vermont Center for Ecostudies is looking for skilled birders to
conduct breeding bird surveys in Vermont for two different long-term
avian monitoring programs--the North American Breeding Bird Survey
<https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/about/> (BBS) and the Vermont Forest Bird

Initiated in 1989, the Vermont Forest Bird Monitoring Program is now one of the continent's longest-running studies of forest bird population trends.



(FBMP).

_*The BBS*_ -- Initiated in 1966, the BBS is North America's
longest-running bird monitoring program with survey routes in every
state, as well as in Canada and Mexico. Each survey route is 24.5 miles
long with stops at 0.5-mile intervals. At each of the 50 stops, a
3-minute point count is conducted during a single morning in June. In
Vermont, there are 23 BBS routes, four of which are currently vacant and
in-need of volunteers. Below is a list of the vacant routes; to view a
map of the routes click here

The North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) is a large-scale, long-term monitoring program designed to track the status and trends of North American bird populations.

87012 - East Haven
87117 - Hardwick

_*The FBMP*_ -- The FBMP was initiated in 1989 with the primary goal of
tracking long-term population trends of interior forest birds. The
program consists of 30 study sites in forested habitats throughout the
state.  Each study site has 5 permanently marked survey stations (point
counts) at which birds are sampled for 10 minutes on two different
mornings during June.  Currently, the 2 study sites listed below are
vacant.  Maps of each study site can be found here

_*Skills Required:*_ Volunteer observers must possess excellent bird
identification skills (both visual and aural) for both the BBS and
FBMP.  For the FBMP, volunteers must be capable of hiking on variable
terrain, often without trails, and navigating with GPS and/or map and
compass.

_*Time Commitment:*_  BBS surveys require a single morning in June and
each survey takes approximately 4-5 hours to complete.  FBMP sites
should be surveyed on two different mornings during June, with each
survey taking between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete (not including travel
time to and from the study site).  For both projects, survey start-times
are ~ 5-5:30 AM).  In addition, another 1-1.5 hours of time is required
to transfer data from field forms onto coding sheets, and to enter data
into an online, web-based data entry system.  Because these are both
long-term monitoring programs, participants should be able to make a
multi-year commitment to the project.

This is a great opportunity for someone to "bird with a purpose" and
contribute to a long-term dataset.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in participating in
either project, or if you simply want more information.

Thanks,
Steve
