  • A recent Comment (Hodges and Kirchhoff 2012) disputes survey results and our analyses of population trend for Kittlitz’s Murrelet Brachyramphus brevirostris in Prince William Sound (PWS), Alaska (Kuletz et al. 2011a). Hodges and Kirchhoff conclude that evidence of a decline in Kittlitz’s Murrelet (KIMU) in PWS between 1989 and 2007 is erroneous, primarily due to species misidentification. Here we explain why the arguments proposed by Hodges and Kirchhoff are unsupported.
