Bird Conservation Overview

We encourage birders to learn about and help or support bird conservation efforts — see below and the right-hand sidebar. Also, New Hampshire Bird Records issues feature various volunteer research projects that birders can help with.

Bird Conservation Projects

  • Backyard Winter Bird Survey — volunteers count birds at their feeders in February for long term population monitoring
  • Important Bird Areas — identify critical bird habitat
  • Project Nighthawk — a research effort to restore urban-nesting Common Nighthawks through nest patch installation and monitoring
  • Swallow CORE — information on swallow declines and helping register nesting locations
