Long Term Bird Monitoring Kasaragod ; Overview 2018- 2019

  1. 1. LONG TERM BIRD MONITORING IN SELECTED SITES OF KASARAGOD Maxim Rodrigues K (Kasaragod Birders)
  2. 2. Thought? • During 2018 Kerala Bird Monitoring meet • Discussion were started through emails and Whatsapp group with the help of experts • Discussions with Kasaragod Birders
  3. 3. Methodology Discussed 1. Jun-Aug-Oct-Dec-Feb-Apr 2. Jun-Sep-Dec-Mar 3. Aug-Oct-Dec-Feb-Jun (Less frequent in Monsoon)
  4. 4. Final sites
  5. 5. Operation- LTBM KASARAGOD • Selected Methodology 3 (Aug-Oct-Dec-Feb-Jun) • With effort of 2 hours in each location (15*8 checklists) How it worked out? • Whatsapp group, Reminders, Help, Support, Discussions.
  6. 6. Group account
  7. 7. Results • More interesting than normal birding. • Covered more locations with proper visits. (coastal areas) • Able to fill birdings gaps, more lists & data • More checklists (more data) {8*5=40, 40*9= 360 checklists/year from 9 locations). • Helped to get more information including breeding nesting (WBSE) • If this is applied for few more locations, we will get more data on distribution (possible to get in touch with locals, due to continous visit) • We have just started, more results will be based on sets of data over few years.
  8. 8. 2014 Total Checklists submitted
  9. 9. 2015
  10. 10. 2016
  11. 11. 2017
  12. 12. 2018
  13. 13. 2019
  14. 14. Challenges • Lack of birders • Location and Birder (time & expense) • Lack of advanced Knowledge
  15. 15. Suggestions • Need somone as a district coordinator • Need a separate group to discuss LTBM • Always need updations • Need extra birders per one location. • Some interested birders may go for monitoring multiple times a year but later there are cases where they fail to conitnue it for long, so selecting some methodology is important. • Meetings, discussions are important.
  16. 16. • More scientific approach? • Timings/ methodology? • It will be good if we get good support from Forest department etc.. • What to do with data, Analysis part!
  17. 17. What about in entire Kerala?
  18. 18. Recent Floods & LTBM Flood impacts and affects Impact on Birds Diversity? Distribution? Population?
