Brooklyn Bird Biodiversity
Research Questions
Are there more birds living around the park?

Are there more birds that live in high income areas than the low income areas?
We expected to see more bird species richness and abundance in the high income area

Also, we expected to see more birds closer to the park because if there are more trees, then there is more food.
What do we know
about urban birds?
Carroll Street
9 survey sites
5 minute observation at each site
How we did the surveys

It is important to study biodiversity because, our society often has negative effects on the environment
Thank You!!
Any Questions?
