THE PATRICK SULLIVAN YOUNG BIRDERS FUND

The Patrick Sullivan Young Birders Fund (PSYBF), supported by contributions from members of the Washington Ornithological Society and from the general public, was established in 2005 to encourage and support young people interested in birding. Grants are available to individual young people or to adults to help fund group birding activities or education for young people. We define “young birders” as anyone in the age group from pre-teens through college showing a serious interest in birds and birding. Both students and non-students are eligible and are encouraged to apply.This grant program is not intended to support graduate school activities.

A Comparison of 2 years of CBC Data 50 Years Apart, 1966 and 2016

With Gary Blevins

A number of factors influence bird observations.  How do these factors affect CBC data?  I decided to focus on data from two specific years that are fifty years apart, 1966 and 2016.  I scrutinized the CBC data from several different viewpoints, species not observed within one of the two years, species with observations that either decreased or increased, and species observations that were similar within the two years.
