The Climate Watch Project Breeding Survey Period is almost here!

SAAS is participating in National Audubon Society’s citizen-science pilot project, Audubon Climate Watch, in both winter and summer.

The goal of the project is to learn how specific bird species are affected by climate change. The SAAS survey will focus on both Red-breasted and White-breasted Nut-hatches.

The survey is conducted twice a year: in the early summer breeding period and in winter. The Audubon Climate Watch program started in 2016 and SAAS joined the program in June, 2017.  The Climate Watch project was developed after National Audubon issued a report in 2014, Birds and Climate Change, on risks faced by North American bird species from climate change.  Volunteers use a specific protocol established by National Audubon: using grid maps of a specific area, birders conduct 12 counts, observing for five minutes each. They  also record the numbers and species of other birds identified within 100 meters (328 feet).
