Project Description

This project involves an annual monitoring effort of wintering shorebirds in the Guerrero Negro Lagunar Complex, located in the central western portion of the Baja peninsula. This is the one of the principal wintering site for shorebirds in this region. We will continue with the banding and re-observation of Marbled Godwit, Pacific Red Knot, and Short-billed Dowitcher, three important species due to recent declines in their populations. Key program activities include: (1) undertake 12 shorebird surveys, which include the most important areas for shorebirds; (2) capture, mark, and re-sight Marbled Godwits, Red Knots, and Short-billed Dowitchers during the months of September-February; and (3) involve at least five local young people into these activities.
