Fuels Mitigation Bird Monitoring
Hired by Colorado Parks and Wildlife to monitor fuels mitigation / treatment sites within Mueller and Lone Mesa State Parks for bird species changes throughout time; before, during, and after project completion. CEC visited established points in the field and collected data on bird breeding status, abundance, and diversity and photos of each location. Data was analyzed for trends and a report summarizing results was created. This is an ongoing project, and is expected to continue for the next 3-5 years.
