Marine Bird Trends in the Salish Sea

Using 20 years of volunteer monitoring data, Birds Canada looked at winter population trends of 50 waterbird species, and published this study in Avian Conservation Ecology – Twenty years of coastal waterbird trends suggest regional patterns of environmental pressure in British Columbia, Canada.

The data for this paper comes from the BC Coastal Waterbird Survey – a monthly volunteer survey to count waterbirds on BC’s coast that has been running for over 20 years.

Identification and Resource Guides

Enjoy these identification guides for the main groups of marine birds. We have left space in each guide for communities to add local Indigenous names for birds species when known, and we would enjoy seeing and learning these indigenous names for birds we all enjoy.
