Aerial bird survey of the coastal waters of Kodiak Island, Alaska, March 9-14, 1977

Metadata Updated: October 9, 2019

A total of 26,036 individuals of 29 nominal species were observed during an aerial survey conducted March 9-14, 1977 which covered more than 90% of the Kodiak Island coastline. The population density in the coastal waters was conservatively estimated at 100.71 ± 24.68 birds/km2. The winter bird population is composed primarily of sea ducks 51%, dabbling ducks (17%), diving ducks (12%), gulls (8%), and alcids (6%). The upper ends of the bays and estuaries contained high concentrations (up to 368 birds/km2) of dabbling ducks, goldeneye, scoters, and murres. Results are compared with previous surveys and the distribution pattern of each species is discussed.
