Avian Studies in the Kuparuk Oilfield, 2009

From 1988–1999, ABR, Inc., conducted avian studies for ARCO Alaska, Inc., in the Kuparuk Oilfield on the Arctic Coastal Plain of Alaska. In 2000–2009, we continued this work under the new operator of the Kuparuk Oilfield, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (formerly PHILLIPS Alaska, Inc.). The emphasis of this study in recent years has been long-term monitoring of the distribution, abundance, and productivity of selected waterfowl populations. Our studies in 2009 focused on three species: Spectacled Eider (Somateria fischeri), Tundra Swan (Cygnus columbianus), and Brant (Branta bernicla). This report summarizes the results of surveys in 2009 for these species. Unlike annual reports prior to 2005, this data report briefly summarizes objectives and annual survey results for each species, including supporting tables and figures, but without further analysis or historical context Brief methods are provided for the surveys conducted in 2009 (Appendix 1). The reader is referred to presentation of detailed methodologies, analysis, and discussion of results in the 2003 and 2004 annual reports (Anderson et al. 2004, 2005).
