Black Swift Monitoring

The fall 2009 meeting in Forest Grove kicked off the beginnings of this project.  The current goal is to begin some sort of westwide effort to inventory this species in 2011.  Jason Beason, RMBO, is leading this effort.
Attached below are preliminary assessments of known locations in western states, by State, compiled by Rich Levad.
Also below, a report by Bob Altman from his 2003 assessment of Black Swift nesting locations in BCR 5.
At the Reno Meeting, Spring 2012, Jason reported the latest finding from their Black Swift Geolocator project.  Their exciting results are in the attached paper from the Wilson Bull.  See Beason et al. 2012 below.
