What We Do
Professional ornithologists associated with Oregon2020 perform standardized monitoring procedures – such as stationary point counts – across the entire state, including off-road and roadside surveys. These procedures are exactly repeatable and follow good scientific practices. All professional data will be thoroughly documented so future researchers can replicate and compare data against our observations.
We need help from citizen scientists to perform this benchmark survey. Citizen birders have specialized skills that are incredibly helpful for mapping and counting birds. Citizen scientists also have detailed knowledge of the birds at their favorite birding areas, so their surveys can be very useful. Citizen data is entered into eBird, to be permanently archved and made publicly available for Oregon2020 and other researchers to access.
Oregon2020 will also make maps, charts, and reports publicly available for everyone to appreciate the distribution of Oregon’s birds.
