Abstract

Shorebirds were counted at selected sites throughout Kansas during 2002-2006. At least 75% of the shorebirds counted during spring and summer-fall were counted at either Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area or Quivira National Wildlife Refuge. Thirty-nine species of shorebirds were reported and species composition varied among regions and seasons. Shorebird numbers peaked during the first two weeks of May in spring and mid-August through September during summer-fall, but varied among regions and species. Recommendations pertaining to habitat management and future surveys are provided based on the results.
