Data Entry for 2020 Elegant Trogon Surveys
Thank you so much for helping with the 2020 Elegant Trogon Survey of Five Sky Island Mountain Ranges in SE Arizona. This is the only organized survey for this species in the United States and is powered with community science volunteers such as yourself. This survey is organized by Tucson Audubon Society as part of the Arizona Important Bird Areas work supported by Arizona Game and Fish Dept. These surveys are also in partnership with Rick Taylor, founder of the Huachuca Mountains and Chiricahua Mountains Elegant Trogon counts.
Use this online form to enter your survey results. The first questions are about the survey itself, who was there, where you were etc. If you select the option at the bottom of the first page that you did NOT have trogons on your route, the survey ends. If you respond that you DID have trogons it takes you to a second page where you can enter information about your first trogon sighting (a single sighting can be a pair, a lone bird or two males having an interaction etc.). At the end of that page it asks if you have more trogons to report, if you respond YES, it takes you to another page to report on your next trogon (or pair) to report. When you reach your last sighting, respond NO to the question on whether you have more trogons to report and the survey ends.
