  • Mineral Site Survey
    • The Mineral Site Survey became operational in 2004 and is used to monitor the Pacific Coast Population. The survey is a coordinated effort among state and provincial wildlife agencies in California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Canadian Wildlife Service. The Mineral Site Survey involves a visual count of band-tailed pigeons at select mineral sites throughout the population's range. Information on the abundance and harvest of Band-tailed Pigeons in the United States and British Columbia can be found within the annual population status reports.
