North American Breeding Bird Survey Loggerhead Shrike

BBS Peer Review Report
[ back to the BBS News main page ]

In April 1999, a Review Panel was commissioned by the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center to review the scientific and operational aspects of the U.S. Breeding Bird Survey (BBS). The Panel's report consisting of 31 recommendations was released in February 2000 and is presented here in its entirety along with the implementation plan addressing each of the recommendations.

We thank the Review Panel members for their time and thoughtful recommendations for the BBS program, and look forward to the challenge of implementing these suggestions in our efforts to improve and strengthen the BBS program.

Panel Members:
Erica Dunn, Canadian Wildlife Service
Douglas H. Johnson, USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Stephanie L. Jones, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Raymond J. O'Conner, University of Maine (Panel Chair)
Daniel Petit, USGS Biological Resources Division
Ken Pollock, North Carolina State University
