COUNTS OF BIRDS seen, heard, or captured are commonly used to elucidate avian-habitat relationships, investigate responses of avian populations to management treatments or to environmental disturbances, estimate spatial distribution of species, and monitor population trends. The point-count method, in which an observer records all birds detected within either a fixed or an unlimited distance from a point during a specified time period (Ferry and Frochot 1970, Hutto et al. 1986), is the most… CONTINUE READING
