    Survey method

The survey methodology was devised with reference to Carey et al. 2001. The site was surveyed by at least two group members in the morning (between 7am and 11am) using 1.5-hours line transects. Bird species and relative abundance were recorded by sighting and/or hearing during the survey. Other information such as weather and temperature, were also recorded during the survey.
