Life forms: birds
Site length: 1000.000
Site width: 1000.000
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 366
Days: 2
Nets or traps: 96
Net or trap nights: 192
Sampling comments: a single approximate 1 km x 1 km plot
"Birds were captured with mist nets (12 × 2.6 m, 36-mm mesh) set at ground level. Nets were arranged in a series of eight sets of 12 nets on each plot (96 sites per plot)... Each set of nets was run for one day (∼0600 to 1200 h) in January (peak of breeding for many species) and one day in March (late breeding season for many species)"
