Volunteer to conduct nocturnal roadside nightjar surveys
WildResearch needs volunteers to conduct nightjar surveys to help understand and conserve these two unique species, Common Nighthawks and Common Poorwill.
The WildResearch Nightjar Survey is a citizen science survey program that collects baseline data for an understudied group of birds of conservation concern, the nightjars. The nocturnal habits of nightjars exclude them from detection on other survey programs, but available evidence suggests their populations are declining. Under the WildResearch Nightjar Survey, volunteers in many areas of the country conduct nocturnal roadside surveys for nightjars to contribute to a publicly-available dataset.
