Triangle Bird Count Census Period – extended to May 31, 2018
Hey everyone! One of our volunteers asked an extremely important question with regard to the viewing period for the Triangle Bird Count. If you look at the protocol at the top of the second page you will see that it says that the viewing period for the count is from April 15 – May 15. […]
Welcome to our new Coordinator!
Hi everyone my name is Michael Caslin, I am sorry for the delay in getting the maps created. I am the grad student in charge of obtaining all the necessary data and creating the maps for the project but had limited time to work on them this semester due to the heavy workload. I had […]
Welcome to the new TriBC Coordinator, Dr. Kaberi Kar Gupta! While she has working with the project from the beginning, Kaberi will now be the point-of-contact person, as Elizabeth transitions to a seasonal job with Smithsonian’s Neighborhood Nestwatch program. We are trying to consolidate our communications, so contact via SciStarter is preferred. If you […]
Oh no! Tech issues– no response to your emails?
Hi everyone, the Triangle Bird Count protocols are now up and available for you to view or download. If you are an active participant (sent us your selection of points), then we will provide printed copies to you as part of a participant package, either at the in-person information session or via US Mail.
Choose Points Reminder
Did you contact us, but not heard a response? We sincerely apologize, and were not ignoring you! We recently discovered a major technical glitch on our webpage (now resolved, we hope!) that may have resulted in emails from you not being routed to us properly. If you are still interested in participating, please sign up […]
In-person Training & Info Session
If you haven’t already chosen count points and sent them to us, please do that within the next week or so. At least send us the city and general location in that city you want, and we can assign points to you. Thanks!
2018 Count Window Announced!
We want to hold an in-person training meeting, ideally the last week of March or the first week of April on the NC State main campus. Please let us know as soon as possible if a weekday evening or weekend day is more convenient for you, or if this location presents a hardship. At the […]
Choose Your Own Points
The 2018 pilot count window will be April 15-May 15. Each participant will perform 1 count at each of their assigned locations within this time frame. You can choose any day within this window to do your counts, but you should do all of your counts in a single morning, if at all possible.
Point groupings issue & other updates
Due to logistical issues, we are abandoning the computer-assigned groupings for the points. Choose 6-12 points you can reasonably cover in a single morning. Report the CIDs of the points you wish to count, preferably via SciStarter.
Hi everyone and welcome to those of you who just joined us! Recently, it was brought to our attention that for some cities, the groupings of points on the interactive map have too many points in them. We’re working on getting the program to sort points into groups of 6-12 points before we assign everyone […]
