2019 Final Avian Studies in the Willow Project Area

This report presents the results of eider and loon surveys that were conducted in the Willow Project area during 2019. The surveys were designed to collect data on the distribution, abundance and habitat use of 2 focal taxa in support of permit application: Spectacled Eider ( Somateria fisheri) and Yellow-billed Loon (Gavia adamsii). These species were selected because of: 1) treatened or sensitive status: 2) restricted breeding range; and 3) best management practices adopted by BLM for NPR-A. Nesting and brood-rearing Pacific Loons (Gavia pacifica) andRed-throated Loons (Gavia stellata) and gulls were recorded incidentally during loon surveys.
