The spring shorebird migration has largely drawn to a close and most species are displaying on their breeding grounds now or even feeding young. The first southbound adults could occur any day now, and we hope that you will survey your sites again this year! If for some reason you are unable to conduct your surveys this year, please let us know so that we can try to find a replacement. Better yet, perhaps you can find a replacement and show them the ropes! Below you can download a short newsletter discussing ISS protocol and how best to use it to survey your sites as this summer gives way to fall shorebird migration.
