  • Waterbird Monitoring Program
    the central gulf coast of Sonora and its islands roughly half of the common avian species are classified as waterbirds birds that obtain the majority of their diet from salt or fresh water Due to their various habitat and food quality needs waterbirds as a group act as indicators for ecological health In addition due to their sheer abundance diversity and often density they can act as flagship species for conservation of specific sites such as the islands and estuaries on which they rely Recent studies have shown that many species of waterbirds are declining on a global scale as a result of habitat loss and climate change among other reasons Most waterbirds are highly social and colonial nesters forming colonies of a few individuals to several million The above mentioned reasons combined with the small amount of ornithological attention that has focused on the central Sonora coast provides the impetus for the waterbird studies at the Kino Bay Center Currently the WMP has several projects focusing on waterbird conservation In the coastal wetlands locally known as esteros projects addressing diversity and abundance of migratory and resident birds throughout the fall winter and spring have shown that Estero Santa Cruz and Estero Cardonal meet the qualifying criteria for being recognized as Wetlands of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network Sites of Regional Importance and Important Bird Areas IBA as recognized by BirdLife International Work has begun to address the feasibility and practicality of each designation in December 2010 Estero Santa Cruz and Estero Cardonal were both nominated as IBAs In 2013 Estero Santa Cruz was declared a Wetland of International Importance through the United Nations Ramsar Convention Work on Isla Alcatraz includes multispecies 14 nest monitoring throughout the fall winter and spring of each year This research addresses diversity and abundance as well as spatial distribution We have also investigated the presence of nesting Craveri s Murrelets on the Sonora Midriff Islands and their nest site preferences Waterbird Monitoring Projects American Oystercatcher Haematopus palliates nest abundance and success on Isla Alcatraz Little is published on American Oystercatchers in the Gulf of California Learn more Craveri s Murrelet vocalization recording In 2008 a Prescott College senior project student received funding from the Wild at Heart Foundation and Learn more Double crested Cormorant Phalacrocorax auritus albociliatus nest distribution abundance and chronology on Isla Alcatraz Isla Alcatraz supports the largest Double crested Cormorant nesting colony in the Gulf of California Learn more Impact of Semana Santa visitors on the nest success of the Yellow footed Gull Larus livens on Isla Alcatraz The Isla Alcatraz Yellow footed Gull colony is significant comprised of 350 nests and an estimated 2 of Learn more Isla Alcatraz Program Isla Alcatraz is a small island located 1 4 km offshore of the town of Bahía Kino Sonora Mexico In 1999 Learn more Migratory and resident waterbird census in Estero Santa Cruz Estero Cardonal and Estero Tastiota Esteros Santa Cruz Cardonal and Tastiota are
