BBS Methodology - Point Counts [page 18/34]
a BBS Point Count (continued)
and only one person should identify and count the birds; this
person is known as the Observer.
Assistants may help with almost any aspect of the BBS except the
detection and counting of birds (i.e., recording the data, driving,
data submission, counting of cars, etc.).
We recommend limiting the number of assistants to two individuals
on any given survey to avoid compromising the counts with unnecessary
noise and distractions that often accompany larger groups.
