Detailed Description

San Francisco Bay and the surrounding wetlands and ponds provide important habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds. To aid land and resource managers in tracking wildlife responses to habitat restoration efforts, Biological Science Technician, Aliya, conducts a high tide waterbird survey of a restored salt pond in the Napa-Sonoma Marshes Wildlife Area at the northern edge of San Francisco Bay.  Data from surveys such as these can better inform decision makers on the habitat characteristics most likely to attract target species of waterbirds.
