Pete,
The short answer is we have done so for the last 31 years. Many of our publications
address climate related changes in bird numbers and activity. Others relate many
negative changes to changes in farming practices.

Our 31 years as co-op weather reporting station for the NWS provide daily climate
data to both NWS and the public. That info allows unique on-site, exact weather
correlation to several studies. We have the first 10 years of an ongoing study of
the phenology of a dragonfly species currently in press. That study relies heavily
on the daily climate data collected here.

All our, and all other banding station' data are kept in a data base at the Bird
Banding Lab at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Md and accessible by request to
public researchers. The climate data is also available via the National Climate data
Center.

Best,
John
