Project Description

Under the guidance of the Arizona Bird Conservation Initiative (ABCI), the Arizona Coordinated Bird Monitoring (AZCBM) Program has been developed to provide a framework for the design and implementation of the long-term monitoring of Arizona’s birds. The goal is to establish a monitoring program which is coordinated among federal, tribal, state, and private land management entities statewide and that will also contribute to regional and national efforts to assess bird population trends. This project aims to establish a monitoring program for priority birds that breed in upland and lower habitats of the Sonoran Desert. This will be an integrated monitoring effort with Department of Defense, Bureau of Land Management, Arizona Game and Fish, Fish and Wildlife Service, Tonto National Forest, and other collaborators across the region.
