Great news from Flat Ranch Preserve!
Last we conducted a pre-nesting curlew survey on Flat Ranch with biologist Rob Cavallaro of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
The survey involved three transects, each containing 5 to 9 survey points. Teams of two walked each transect, stopping at survey points for 5 minutes to record individual curlews, either by visual or auditory confirmation.
According to Rob, these preliminary findings suggest that Flat Ranch may have the highest density of nesting curlews in the country!
