Our pilot year has officially wrapped up with the completion of Frontenac Breeding Birds: Report on the 2009 Field Season. The document summarizes all of our data on breeding bird populations collected from May-August 2009. The results are truly exciting and we are looking forward with great anticipation to what 2010 will bring. The report, in its present form, contains confidential information on Species at Risk but a more streamlined version will be available for wider distribution in early January.
Our attention will now shift to setting priorities for avian research and monitoring in 2010 and beyond. This past year has laid the critical groundwork, providing us the opportunity to refine methodology and also to focus and enhance our efforts going forward. Stay tuned for news and announcements in the coming months!
