Breeding Bird Surveys at SERC
Entry ID: siserc_bird001


Summary
Abstract: The locations of all birds seen or heard during a census were marked
on a map. Censuses were conducted along 10 lanes, 50 m apart through a
15 ha section of mature upland forest that was dominated by Quercus,
Fagus, and Liriodendron. The censuses were conducted mainly in the
morning hours between 0600 and 1100 during June and July of 1983,
1987, 1989, 1990, 1991, 992, and 1995. Surveys taken 5 to 11 times
per summer.

The file census2.xls on the floppy disk contains a summary of the
number of breeding territories of each species that were present each
summer. The maps from the censuses indicate the precise location of
the territories and some information on their behavior during the
observation.
