Waterbird Conservation Projects

black tern (72ppi 4x)Black Terns
From 1997 to 2010, KBO implemented a Black Tern monitoring project in the Upper Klamath Basin of southern Oregon. The study has helped us understand local population distribution and trends for this emergent wetland obligate that is endangered,
threatened, or of conservation concern in much of its range.
Colonial Waterbirds
From 2009-2011 KBO gathered historic Great Blue Heron colony data and implemented colonial waterbird surveys throughout Oregon and parts of Washington to contribute to the Western Colonial Waterbird Survey, a West-wide U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service effort. Data will be incorporated into an atlas to help understand regional baseline population information and distribution patterns.
