It’s no secret we are passionate about our saltmarsh sparrow #neighbirds, and so are our friends at Saltmarsh Habitat & Avian Research Program! Together with partners, we are surveying saltmarsh sparrow nests to learn more about the elusive species. Data collected in 2021/22 will be compared to data from more than a decade ago, providing new insights on the health of tidal-marsh bird populations and tidal marshes overall.

What does it take to do this work? Check out below to get a look!


Collaboration is key as we work to halt the steep decline of the Saltmarsh Sparrow population. So is awareness. We’re very grateful to see the Chesapeake Bay Journal highlight U.S. Fish and Wildlife/ACJV Saltmarsh Sparrow survey efforts this summer–part of a larger, critical region-wide effort led by our great partners Saltmarsh Habitat & Avian Research Program.
