2011 Toolik Field Station Avian Point Count DataEntry ID: 2011_Toolik_Point_Counts
Abstract: Weekly point count surveys were conducted at nineteen points along four routes near Toolik Field Station from late May to late July in 2011 using the methods described by the Alaska Landbird Monitoring Survey. At each point, an observer stood for ten minutes and recorded each individual bird detected, method of detection, and radial distance to the bird.
Purpose: These point counts were conducted to monitor bird presence in the Toolik Field Station area, and with the intention of calculating density estimates for common species in the area.
