Midwest Coordinated Bird Monitoring
The Midwest Coordinated Bird Monitoring website (linked here) is an online storehouse of information, organized and maintained by Katie Koch of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. You can find a wealth of information about monitoring programs for volunteers or professional researchers across the Midwest, check out the Monitoring Registry, find a link to the new and emerging Midwest Avian Data Center, develop your own page, or find a wide array of opportunities at the site. It is, as accurately described, "a regional network for bird conservation committed to coordination and exchange of monitoring information in a decision-based framework". Spend some time at the site and learn more - it has a very readable format and is continually being updated.
