Abstract

Birds are tempting to include in studies of tropical ecology and conservation. Yet, they are deceptively difficult to detect, identify and, particularly, count. We briefly review some common challenges of surveying tropical birds, offer guidance on the most important decisions to consider when selecting methodologies, and recommend best practices to ensure collection of reliable, repeatable, and reviewer-friendly survey data.
