Summary:
As a part of the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife contribution to the South Florida Ecological Study, the Bureau entered into a contract with the National Audubon Society. Under provisions of this contract, Audubon surveyed and inventoried the major colonial-nesting wading bird rookeries in South Florida during the 1971 and 1972 nesting seasons. The status of the region's wading bird populations (outside of the Everglades National Park), as determined by these inventories and from other observations and records, is discussed in the National Audubon Society's report to the Bureau by Dr. Alexander Sprunt, IV, and Richard T. Paul. This further discussion is intended to consolidate the Audubon data with data relative to the Everglades Park Populations, and to further explore certain relationships between wading birds, water levels, and other biota of the South Florida wetlands ecosystem.
