RI Osprey Monitoring Statistics for April 2017

Hi fellow monitors!

To those of you who submitted your data prior to the end of the month – thank you very much.   To those of you who have yet to enter your observations, Grrrrrr….. 😉

Following are some statistics based on the data for April.   I try to summarize the status of each month during the season.   The summaries make the year-end review much more accurate and help us see problems with coverage, nest structures, etc. in a timely manner.

Sites that Still Need a Monitor 26 These are historically viable sites with nest structures.  We need monitors to at least check on these sotes to see if they are active.

Happy monitoring!!
