The Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) is one of the longest running and most important monitoring programs for birds in North America with 4000 routes across the US (and Canada). https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/about/

PSBO and Washington State’s BBS coordinator, Don Norman, are offering training for this year's BBS routes (sorry for this very short notice) to discuss the rationale of, survey protocol and techniques (bird detection is primarily by sound) used in the BBS. Practice field training will also be held. These sessions will help you acquire the skill set to become a BBS point counter. And as there are open routes available in Washington state, you can still sign up as a participant for this summer in the Breeding Bird Survey! Available routes are shown in the USGS Website https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/RouteMap/Map.cfm <https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbs/RouteMap/Map.cfm>

The BBS evening training session is: 7pm this Friday, May 3 at Don’s home (2112 NW 199th Street, Shoreline). Field training will be on Sunday, May 5, starting at 6:30am at the Edmonds Marsh overlook off Dayton Ave.
