Description: The Gulf Coast Bird Observatory (GCBO) and the Southeastern Working Group of Partners in Flight have developed a protocol to monitor landbirds with volunteer observers performing avian censuses in the field. Field observations are compiled within a powerful internet database, and recording and summary capability is maintained by the GCBO. More than 100 observers have supplied data from sites primarily in the southeastern United States. Results of three case studies are presented, illustrating the application of migration monitoring data to land conservation, community education, and research hypothesis generation, not only in southeastern United States, but across the Caribbean Basin as well. Such results will allow us to make appropriate decisions for habitat conservation of migratory songbirds during their passage through the southeastern United States. Because the protocol is easy to perform and widely applicable, we suggest this protocol be used as a means to monitor migration throughout the Caribbean Basin.
