Happy New Year!
I finally posted the 2019 aerial survey summary on our website: https://www.jamesbayshorebirdproject.com/aerial2019. Sincere thanks to Guy Morrison and Ken Ross for surveying and Mike Ellis for piloting! Further thanks to Yves Aubry, CWS Quebec for funding the Quebec portion of the work.
Counts were significantly lower than in the previous three years and suggest a poor breeding season for Semipalmated Sandpiper and potentially other shorebird species. Apologies for the delay in posting this summary.
