Coastal California Shorebird Survey – San Francisco Bay

January 1st, 2011 - January 1st, 2011 | PROJECT

Each fall and winter, hundreds of volunteers will scour the SF Bay to count migratory shorebirds. This study will help elucidate the importance of SF Bay wetlands as wintering grounds for shorebirds and other waterbirds. Conducting the survey helps us understand which parts of the bay shorebirds are using and if restoration projects are successful.
