This is for those keen to further bird conservation with their birding skills! We are short on capacity this year relative to our workload, with too many projects of various sorts. One that we have not been able to get to is ongoing monitoring of golden-winged warbler breeding populations.
In the past, we have conducting 10-minute point counts in various areas across the species' historical range in WV, and I'm wondering if anyone might be interested in visiting some of these points this year before the end of June. These points, totaling ~120, are located in the Allegheny and Cumberland mountains regions in southern, central, and northern WV. As I mentioned, each point is 10 minutes and includes a song playback component.
If you're interested, just respond to this email and I'll provide additional details, forms etc.
