Wednesday September 13, 2017 7:30 pm Program - The Franconia Breeding Bird Survey
The North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) is a program to monitor the status and trends of North American birds during the breeding season. The BBS is a roadside survey conducted annually by volunteers in the US, Canada, and Mexico. This presentation, by Steve Hale, PhD, Research Associate at the UNH Leitzel Center, will feature the Franconia route, which has run for the full 52 years of the program, since its inception in 1966. It begins at Cannon Mountain, runs south along the western valley flanking Kinsman Ridge in the White Mountains, heads eastward up and over Kinsman Notch, descends through Woodstock, and ends in Lincoln. Images of the diverse birds, habitats, and trend data will be presented. This is the Seacoast Chapter annual business meeting for the election of executive board officers.
