Hello birders, This is a heads-up that WBCI will be implementing a new statewide survey for Red-shouldered Hawks this upcoming spring. This is a state-threatened species whose populations are poorly monitored. The primary goal of the survey is not to find every individual or nest in the state but rather to estimate the number of breeding pairs and monitor long-term trends in distribution and abundance by systematically sampling the population. We will be recruiting volunteers to conduct two morning surveys of pre-established survey routes in April. Surveys are ~ 8 miles along either roads or river systems. Water-based routes will occur in the Driftless Area of western Wisconsin. Road routes will be focused in central Wisconsin from Juneau County northeast to Marinette County and northwest to Burnett County. Only a few routes will be in far northern Wisconsin where the species is very rare. I will announce more details later but if you think you may have interest please drop me a quick email.
