Painter Marsh Bird Inventory
From August 27, 2011 to June 26, 2012, the MCWD conducted a total of 15 surveys at Painter Marsh in Minnetrista. The surveys took an inventory the bird species and individual birds that visit at this site throughout the year. The work will help the District and others understand how projects on the site may impact this valuable birdlife habitat.
A total of 117 species and approximately 5,000 individual birds were recorded during the 15 surveys. These species are listed on the attached Total Inventory & Status sheets, which also include a status column that indicates whether the species was Common (C), Uncommon (U) or Occasional (O) at the site.
