río embudo birds

Changes in Bird Species and Number through the seasons in a spring-fed arroyo in Northern New Mexico.

From previous experience with the location, it is known that there is a great deal of breeding activity in the summer, but during the winter, birds are scarce. The intention is to survey species and individuals once per month through-out the year.

The goal is to understand how the avian utilization of the arroyo changes seasonally and provide an opportunity to see and feel the changes on the land through the seasons.
