Climate Watch Results

Climate Watch has only just begun. See the results from our work so far.

In the first peer-reviewed study of the first three years of data collection, Climate Watch volunteers help determine the impact of climate change to bluebirds and nuthatches. 

Hundreds of dedicated volunteers traversed habitats across the U.S. to look for bluebirds, nuthatches, goldfinch, towhee and painted bunting in Audubon’s Climate Watch program. To highlight these efforts, we have both written reports for each survey period an online reporting tool, where you can explore  the  locations  of  past  Climate  Watch  survey  periods  and  the  bird  data  that were collected. 

Explore results from years 2016-2018 Climate Watch surveys in the interactive online reporting tool map below:
