St Johns Shorebird Partners,
Thanks to those of you who attended the post-season meeting on October 7th and to those who spent time surveying beaches and rooftops this past season. The notes from the meeting are below along with the presentation that Alex Kropp gave and other materials from the meeting:
Surveys & count windows: SJSurveysWindows
The pre-season meeting will be planned for February. Some to do items before nesting season begins next year are:
- contact your rooftop building owners to let them know they should be doing any repairs/maintenance to their rooftops now before nesting starts in March, make sure to thank them for hosting endangered/threatened species on their roofs (thank you post card)
- if you have not done so already, get trained on how to record and enter nesting data into the Florida Shorebird Database. Alex Kropp can lead a training before the nesting season next year, contact Anna Deyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would be interested in attending.
Let me know if you have any more ideas.
Anna Deyle, NE Assistant Regional Species Conservation Biologist, FWC
