MAPS (Monitoring Avian Production Survey) banding began earlier this month on Leslie Canyon NWR.  This is the ninth season that MAPS has been done on the refuge.  The MAPS program is a cooperative effort designed to provide long-term data on population and demographic parameters for target landbird species.  On the refuge, the information collected will provide a better understanding for the productivity, survivorship, and population trends of avian communities on the Leslie Canyon National Wildlife Refuge.  Regionally, these data will help contribute information that is critically needed for selected North American landbird species by providing annual regional indices and estimates for four population and demographic parameters: adult avian population size, post-fledging productivity, and adult survivorship and recruitment.  The MAPS data is provided to a national data base for the Institute for Bird Populations.
