Introductory meeting & roof-check assignments (May 2013)

Thanks to everyone who attended the Shorebird Partnership meeting this week.  It was great to meet you all! We can plan for a post-season meeting in the fall (in person or by conference call if you prefer) so that we can share results and lessons learned from our first season as a partnership and plan for the year ahead. 

As promised, below are the links to everything you need to get started this season:

  • Signs and outreach: Check out the Florida Shorebird Alliance website, where you can find printable signs and rooftop outreach materials (rooftop letter to building managers, the chick checking manual, and the list of historic rooftops): www.flshorebirdalliance.org.


  • Monitoring & Data entry: The Florida Shorebird Database is at www.flshorebirddatabase.org – You must register to enter data, but anyone can check out the resources (protocol and other training videos) on the “Resources” tab. The survey windows are listed in the protocol, and the next one is coming up May 13-19. A full (90 minute) protocol & data entry training webinar is available at http://fwc.adobeconnect.com/p24luknsvy6


  • Rooftop monitoring: Here is a list of all the historic rooftops and the volunteer who offered to check them:

           Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties: SEFL_roofop_volunteers

           Monroe County: Keys_roofop_volunteers

If you know of anyone that can help us check some of these rooftops, please let us know (feel free to forward this list to others you may know)! If there’s already a volunteer for that rooftop, please let that volunteer know, in case s/he can use the help monitoring.

  • Chick-checking: Please contact Ricardo.Zambrano@myfwc.com if there are chicks falling off a rooftop. Ideally, the building owner or tenant can check around the building a few times a day and return uninjured chicks to the rooftop. If the owners/tenants are unable or unwilling to do so, we can hopefully round up some additional volunteers to help search for chicks every few hours once they start falling.

If you have any questions on anything we covered, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again for being so engaged – we look forward to working with you all!

Naomi Avissar, Shorebird Partnership Coordinator
