The west coast Audubon network and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are partnering on a community science project conducting bi-annual Brown Pelican surveys. The spring 2018 count will be on Saturday, May 19. 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 18 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. This website includes a survey protocol with instructions on how to do the count and where to enter your data. Data is being used to help better understand distribution and abundance of Brown Pelicans and track shifts in population structure. Click here for a link to recent results from Oregon. 

If you are interested in participating please contact Joe Liebezeit at Audubon Society of Portland (jliebezeit@audubonportland.org).
