Avian ecologists combine bird survey data to ID vulnerable boreal species

Continent-wide bird surveys play an important role in conservation, says an avian ecologist, but they can miss rare or isolated species whose habitat is off the beaten path, such as at high elevation or in a dense bog. Now the researchers are combining data from local point counts to know how birds in hard-to-reach habitats are faring report for the first time how birds in hard-to-reach habitats are faring.
