    Hi Rafael. THis is wonderful. Almost every species count is up. How do you account for this/

    Thanks

      Lorena,

      Every year is certainly different. One really can’t tell trends for any of these species from a single year or two. That is the reason why it is so important that we continue counting over a long term period. Additionally, our data is used as part of assessment projects like the Raptor Population Index, which compiles data from dozens of migration monitoring sites in North America to make population trend assessments. On the other hand, we started counting earlier in the season than usual last year with the hopes of increasing our possibility for detecting migratory Swallow-tailed Kites, which begin migration by mid-July. This explains why we have higher numbers of kites. Our earlier start also helped increase our number of Ospreys.

      Thanks
      Rafael
