Partners in Flight Monitoring and Working Group:
Partners in Flight/Aves de las Americas/Parternaires D'Envol is an international network of ornithologists, birders, environmental educators, land managers, academic institutions, government agencies (including this agency, the US Forest Service), and nongovernmental organizations working together to enhance bird populations. The focus of Partners in Flight (PIF) began with those 255 species of landbirds that breed in the U.S. and Canada and spend the winter south of the U.S. border. However, recently, we have explicitly expanded our scope to include all birds, exlusive of hunted species. Further, in a period of more holistic conservation thinking, we believe it is apparent that activities benefiting 800+ species of birds will have value for most other types of wildlife as well. The goals of PIF are to stop the declines in bird populations and to "keep common birds common." If you are interested in knowing more about Partners in Flight, please take some time and browse the Partners in Flight home page as well.
The Monitoring and Inventory Working Group (MWG) is one of eight working groups in the organization. The aim of the MWG is to help standardize protocols for monitoring populations, and establish communication between researchers interested in monitoring issues. The overall focus is the landbird component of all-bird monitoring efforts: sharing our successes and making sure that landbirds are considered fully in all monitoring and conservation plans and efforts.
