CLIMATE WATCH COUNTS
To test how specific species are responding to climate change, teams of Audubon members from chapters across the U.S. have been conducting twice-yearly point counts in specific locations to document the numbers of bluebirds and nuthatches present. Starting January 2016, CNMAS was among the first group of chapters to join the effort, initially tallying Eastern, Western and Mountain Bluebirds. When nuthatches were added as target species, additional teams were recruited to tally White-breasted, Red-breasted and Pygmy Nuthatches. The CNMAS Coordinator for this Citizen Science effort is Judy Liddell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
