Detection Rates

It is difficult to count and identify birds while flying at speeds of 80+ mph. It is also very difficult to see small birds. Survey accuracy is moderate, as there are few birds. An observer counts out 1/8 mile on either side of the plane. This area was surveyed only every 3rd period, alternating with Stansbury Island North.
