Short-term Volunteers Needed for Ontario Woodcock Survey

Citizen Scientists for the American Woodcock Singing Ground Survey report all American Woodcocks seen or heard at designated roadside survey points. Surveys are conducted on a single evening between April 20 and May 20 each year. The information is used to monitor the size of populations throughout North America, and to guide management and conservation efforts. In 2016, we received data for an impressive 87% of 102 assigned routes.

In 2017, we’re setting our sights high, aiming to see all 120 available Ontario routes assigned! Currently, some unassigned routes remain. The survey is especially in need of temporary participants for routes that are surveyed only once every five years. If you’re interested, you can check the online route map for an unassigned route near you. To register for a particular route, please email Bird Studies Canada’s Ontario Volunteer Coordinator Kathy Jones.

Many thanks to all volunteers and coordinators with the survey, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
