Metadata Updated: June 18, 2021

Migratory Sea Bird Watch (F038) is one of a group of seven datasets related to Marine Birds from Coastal Alaska and Puget Sound Data (1974 -1982). Each dataset uses the NODC Taxonomic Code to indicate species.

Migratory Sea Bird Watch (F038) data type contains data from field observations of migratory bird species made at fixed offshore positions. These data are collected to provide information about migratory routes and breeding locales of principal marine bird species. Position, date, start and end times, elapsed time, distance from shore, platform type, counting method and sampling technique are reported for each series of observations. Environmental information may include meteorological and sea surface conditions, ice cover, and tide height and trend. Species information may include age, sex, color, plumage, molt, behavior, number of individuals and number of species. These data were collected in 1977 - 1978 for coastal Alaska.
