Florida Project

Surveys of Snail Kite Breeding and Habitat Use in the Upper St. Johns River Basin

March 2008 - February 2011


Participating Agencies

  • St Johns Water Management District

The purpose of this project is to document snail kite usage and reproduction within the Blue Cypress Marsh Complex (BCMC) during 2008,2009, and 2010. Since the snail kite population in Florida is best viewed as a single population, we also report additional demographic data at the scale of the whole population.
