Atlantic coast piping plover (Charadrius melodus) nest sites are typically found on low-lying beach and dune systems, which respond rapidly to coastal processes like sediment overwash, inlet formation, and island migration that are sensitive to climate-related changes in storminess and the rate of sea-level rise. Data were obtained to understand piping plover habitat distribution and use along their Atlantic Coast breeding range. A smartphone application called iPlover was developed to collect standardized data on habitat characteristics at piping plover nest locations. The application capitalized on a network of trained monitors that observe piping plovers throughout their U.S. Atlantic coast breeding range as...
Sea level rise (SLR) and disturbances from increased storm activity are expected to diminish coastal habitats available for sea turtle, seabird, shorebird, and beach mouse nesting by removing habitat as well as inundating nests during critical incubation periods. The goal of our proposed research is to evaluate past nesting patterns of fourteen coastal nesting species and predict future effects of sea level rise on nesting beaches along the South Atlantic Bight. Maps of coastal vulnerability to SLR combined with historical data sets of long-term and spatially extensive nesting habitat will lead to models that enhance our understanding of the complex environmental changes occurring from global climate change and...
Working with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Manomet Staff have successfully fulfilled the goals and objectives of this grant agreement. In addition, by allocating funds judiciously, we have added addition deliverables to the original contract through a no-cost extension. The utility of the International Shorebird Survey (ISS) has been greatly improved with an upgraded, user-friendly interface for data entry and retrieval. Manomet and ISS have contributed to the increasingly powerful citizen science bird records mechanism in eBird. Historic ISS data collected largely by volunteers as well as professional federal and state biologists over the last 40 years has been error checked and uploaded electronically to the...

Proposed revised critical habitat for the pacific coast western snowy plover. This dataset was created to revise the 2005 final critical habitat rule for the species. This dataset includes polygon features representing proposed unit boundaries and exempted unit boundaries from Washington, Oregon, and California. There are 55 units, some containing from 2 to 10 sub-units. The units are identified by state, unit number, and sub-unit alpha character. Unit boundaries were compiled from data developed in several field offices, including the Western Washington Fish and Wildlife Office (FWO) in Lacey, WA; the Newport Field Office, Newport, OR; the Arcata FWO, Arcata CA; the Sacramento FWO, Sacramento, CA; the Ventura FWO...

Abstract (from http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00300-014-1522-x): Previous studies have documented advancement in clutch initiation dates (CIDs) in response to climate change, most notably for temperate-breeding passerines. Despite accelerated climate change in the Arctic, few studies have examined nest phenology shifts in arctic breeding species. We investigated whether CIDs have advanced for the most abundant breeding shorebird and passerine species at a long-term monitoring site in arctic Alaska. We pooled data from three additional nearby sites to determine the explanatory power of snow melt and ecological variables (predator abundance, green-up) on changes in breeding phenology. As predicted, all...

This project helps the Central Valley Joint Venture (CVJV) track gains and losses of key bird and waterfowl habitats at a landscape scale. This will allow the CVJV to effectively monitor and evaluate habitats essential to conservation planning for wildlife species. This work is important for identifying, assembling, and analyzing data for key habitats of concern and will provide a foundation for future monitoring.
