Macro-invertebrate and Avian Species Survey : Biological Summary Report

Metadata Updated: December 13, 2017

This was a survey effort to determine species diversity and density of macro-invertebrates and avian species inhabiting playa systems located in SW regions of Baca NWR. These playa systems have been dry for some time now but showed evidence of once great bio diversity, hinting that when these playas become wet from seasonal moisture, either from precipitation or via irrigation, they can support a wide range of plants and animals that may not be found in other regions of the refuge. This year there was an extra ordinary high run off from the various creeks that feed into the Baca NWR. This run off was able to extend deep into the western portions of the refuge and filled these playa systems. Wanting to take advantage of these wet conditions, efforts were put forth to survey these areas. Our efforts primarily focused on macro-invertebrates and waterbirds found on or near the playa systems; however we recorded all avian species that were observed.
