The Sierra Nevada Avian Monitoring Information Network (SNAMIN) is an interactive website intended for use by natural resource managers and other
stakeholders across the Sierra Nevada to help inform adaptive management decisions. This site provides easy access to avian monitoring data from
across the Sierra Nevada, allowing users to quickly and easily generate summary, abundance, occupancy, and species richness analyses for over 100
bird species. Results can be generated from the scale of individual transects, to sets of multiple transects within forest service ranger
districts, National Forests, or the entire bioregion.
There are mapping tools for visualizing the spatial distribution of survey locations and presence/absence of species at those locations and links to raw
data. As new data are collected they are made available on the website within a few months. Currently SNAMIN provides access to data from multiple PRBO avian
monitoring projects including: Sierra-wide bioregional Management Indicator Species project targeting the habitats of Hairy Woodpecker, Mountain Quail, Fox
Sparrow, and Yellow Warbler; as well as aspen, meadow, and fuels treatment monitoring projects in the Northern Sierra. In addition, SNAMIN provides access to
Sierra Nevada relevant avian monitoring resources including recent publications, reports, and white papers.
