    Sagebrush Songbird Survey
    By Christi Norman and Lindell Haggin

    Christi Norman, Audubon Washington’s Eastern WA Program Director, has coordinated statewide wetland habitat conservation programs through the Growth Management Act implementation and promoted avian tourism through the creation of the Great Washington State Birding Trail. Christi’s talk will focus on the 2018 accomplishments of the Sagebrush Songbird Survey, a partnership among Audubon WA, local chapters, and Washington Dept. of Fish and Wildlife as a collaborative, community science research program.  The survey's goal is to test and improve knowledge of Columbia Plateau shrub-steppe bird distribution models and to build a framework for monitoring these species over time. Now in its 6th year, over 200 volunteers have collected field data and posted that data to eBird. The data is incorporated into the WDFW Priority Habitats and Species database, a legally-recognized source for best available science in our state.

     

    Lindell Haggin, the Spokane Audubon Survey chair, will highlight Sagebrush Songbird Survey training and field participation opportunities for members as part of the Spokane’s contribution to the larger project. Both Christi and Lindell look forward to engaging Spokane members as essential contributors to this far-reaching and groundbreaking study to inform long-range conservation strategies for these shrub-steppe birds and their habitat.
