Flow Photo Explorer

The Flow Photo Explorer is an integrated database and machine learning platform for estimating streamflow from timelapse imagery. The goal of this project is to develop new approaches to monitoring hydrologic conditions in streams and rivers where flow data are historically sparse or non-existent.

Explore and Request data from the BBL

Explore bird banders' data and learn how many birds have been banded and encountered since 1960. Banding and encounter data are available for request for research purposes. Pre-1960 banding data are available only for birds that have been encountered after the initial banding. Individual encounter data are available from 1913.

Habitat Vulnerability Assessment for Wintering American Black Ducks

We estimated food availability among five main wetland cover types used by overwintering American Black Ducks: subtidal, fresh water, high marsh, low marsh, and mudflat. Bioenergetics models used to inform North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) can be simplified into two major components: energetic demand and energetic supply. 

Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in the Chesapeake

Findings from US Geological Survey studies on sources, occurrence, effects and risk of contaminants throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Fish Species Observations from Inland Chesapeake Bay Watershed Fish Samples

The following map summarizes data compiled within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Inland Fisheries Database which comprises fish sampling data collected by federal and state agencies, river basin commissions, universities, and other organizations across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Story Map: Avian Influenza in the United States

This story map explores the role USGS scientists play in understanding the risks presented by avian influenza, and how their work is being used to predict areas of transmission risk.

Whole Wildlife Toxicology Catalog

The Whole Wildlife Toxicology Catalog is a compilation of websites containing toxicological information related to amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals that may be of value to scientists, risk assessors, regulators and natural resource managers.

How many birds have been banded since 1960?

Explore the total number of birds banded and band encountered by bird group since 1960 by bird banders.

BBL Longevity Records

Explore bird banders' data and learn how long birds may live.

Key Reference for Banders

The key reference book for banders describing the valid codes which include both the numeric and alpha codes for each species, status and additional information codes, and age, sex, and region codes.

Key Reference for BBL Codes

The BBL uses a variety of codes to facilitate the data management processes involving the submission of banding records by banders, the submission of reports of banded birds by the public (encounters), and in our publicly available bird banding and encounter datasets.
