Join us for a virtual chat and presentation with Tara Beveroth of
the Illinois Natural History Survey in Champaign as as she
highlights her avian research and
(Monitoring Of Owls and Nightjars) in Illinois.
Project MOON: Monitoring Of Owls and
MOON was initiated in 2008 as a volunteer-based program through the
state of Illinois. Volunteers monitor routes located along
suitable habitat for owls and nightjars from April to June.
The Routes are 9 miles long with 10 stops per route.
unique thing about MOON is that volunteers are encouraged to monitor
for all species they hear during the listening period. This
additional data provides insight into the life histories of other
Common Nighthawk - a Nightjar - Nesting in
as Tara also discusses other current monitoring programs, such as
Breeding Bird Survey (BBS), Spring Bird Count (SBC), and Christmas
Bird Count. These statistically powerful monitoring programs
for nocturnal species will allow us to detect small population
changes over a shorter period of time.
