Data Extent

Forest bird monitoring data from national forests of the western Great Lakes region

Data in this package represent bird observations from monitoring programs in National Forests of the western Great Lakes region; Chippewa, Superior, Chequamegon and Nicolet. The Chequamegon unit of the Nicolet National Forest is referred to as an individual National Forest, ‘Chequamegon’, in this package and the associated publication by Niemi et al. (2016). The data are summaries of the number of observations by bird species by forest stand and by year. Each stand ID by National Forest combination represents a set of unique locations (usually 1-3 points) surveyed annually in the Chippewa (1995-2011), Superior (1995-2011) and Chequamegon (1995-2010) National Forests or biennially in the Nicolet National Forest (1987-2011).
