What We Do
We are always busy!
There are many ways to monitor birds. RPBO uses several of these methods - a standardized daily census along an established transect, observations by experienced birders, and bird banding. Each strategy has its purpose, and together, provides more information about bird populations than any of these methods could alone.
New methods, such as the use of geolocators and satellite transmitters and the analysis of stable isotopes in bird feathers are being added to strategies for monitoring birds.
