    TWRA symbol

The Warner Parks Breeding Bird Survey route has been run each year from 1985-2005. The route, patterned after the North American Breeding Bird Survey, lies entirely within the park and samples its various habitats. Beginning at 6:00 a.m., the 25-mile route is surveyed in the first week in June every 0.5 mile for three minutes by one observer for all species and individuals seen and heard. From 2001-2005, on average 44.2 species (61 species total) of 305 individuals were recorded. Of the 61 species detected during this period, 25 species (41%) were neotropical. There were 397 neotropical individuals out of 1,525 total individuals for the period 2001-2005 or 26% neotropicals.
