Bird Projects

BTNEP has initiated many projects addressing birds and bird habitat over the last 7 years ranging from - educational products such as videos, posters, brochures, and documents - to research and monitoring such as plover surveys, wading bird surveys, and research addressing growth of woody plants along the coast that are important to Neotropical migrants - to habitat restoration projects including maritime forest restoration at Port Fourchon, LA and planting of trees on Grand Isle, LA.  These are but a few projects that we have initiated or developed through partnerships.


Below is a list of some of the bird related projects that BTNEP is involved with.  In many instances they have resulted in the development of reports or other products.  If you are interested in receiving any of these products, contact the BTNEP rogram at (800) 259-0869 or email your request to
