Landbird Monitoring Network of the Americas

LaMNA is on hiatus as of Spring 2016 with limited staffing.
Data remain securely archived and available online.
Stay tuned for developments or contact us for more information

Our purpose is to bring together people who monitor birds, from the smallest bird banding and censusing stations to large bird observatories and government agencies and to preserve data for the future. Some of our goals are to:

  • increase communication between researchers through newsletters and meetings,
  • facilitate cooperative research projects spanning regional boundaries,
  • make bird banding data available to a wide audience,
  • provide tools to researchers and managers for data exploration and analysis, and
  • preserve data from loss.

If you are interested in contributing data to this effort, please contact us.
