This report summarizes findings from the first 17 years of NBP surveys in four Seattle City
Parks: Discovery Park, Golden Gardens, Carkeek Park, and Magnuson Park (see Appendix for
maps). The primary goals of this analysis are (1) to summarize general trends in avian
diversity and abundance over time in the study areas, and (2) to assess the impact of habitat
restoration activities on bird communities in the study areas.
BirdWeb offers extensive profiles of the 350-plus species of birds that occur regularly in
Washington, along with shorter notes on more than 100 species of rarities.
For each bird species, users will find color photographs, range maps, and information about
the bird's habitat, behavior, diet, nesting, distribution, and conservation status.
