Monitoring Marine Birds of Concern in the Eastern Chukchi Nearshore Area (Loons) (AK-07-04a)

The initial BOEM environmental impact analysis for the 5 Year Program, 2007-2012, identifies species of concern in the Chukchi Sea. Recommendations to BOEM (Section 7 Consultation, Beaufort Sale 186) included research on migratory species of concern. Thus, updated information on marine bird distribution, species composition, molting, staging and timing of use in the eastern Chukchi coastal area between Barrow and Point Hope is needed. Avian species of moderate-high concern include the Spectacled Eider, Yellow-billed Loon, Red-throated Loon, and Pacific Black Brant. Both the threatened Spectacled Eiders and the Yellow-billed Loon occur in coastal and marine environments from Barrow south to Cape Lisburn. Ledyard Bay is ESA Critical Habitat for the Spectacled Eiders, and limited surveys indicate Peard Bay may also be an important molting area.
