Subject: [obol] Pacific Brown Pelican Survey
Dear OBOL,

The west coast Audubon network, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and eBird
are partnering on a community science project conducting bi-annual Brown
Pelican surveys. This spring the count will be on *Saturday, May 6*. We ask
volunteers to conduct the count *for at least 1 hour during a 4-hour window
ending at civil twilight (about 9pm)* that day. We have targeted 17 sites
along Oregon’s coast but volunteers can choose their own survey sites as
well.

To learn more about this opportunity visit:
*http://ca.audubon.org/brownpelicansurvey*
<http://ca.audubon.org/brownpelicansurvey>. This website includes a survey
protocol, preliminary results from previous counts, as well as
instructional information on how to enter the survey data directly into
eBird.

*If you are interested in participating please contact Joe Liebzeit at
Audubon Society of Portland (<jliebezeit...>
<jliebezeit...>). *

Data is being used to help better understand distribution and abundance of
Brown Pelicans and track shifts in population structure.
