Quality This indicator is now OBSOLETE. These data are no longer archived in this location, and are therefore not up-to-date.

Censuses of breeding adults are performed and long term trends are determined. Integration with other long term datasets is currently underway through international collaborations, allowing for comparisons among sites at regional and ecosystem scales.

Some analyses and their interpretations have been published (see references), and current analyses will examine population data as they are compiled.
