The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 2,003 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

The inventory was conducted during five years between August 2013 and October 2018 by experienced birdwatchers: Sofia Goulart, Mariana R. Brito and Sónia Santos. The aim of this work is to inventory the avifauna present in the three coastal areas of Praia da Vitória (Terceira Island, Azores) focused on the LIFE-CWR Project, Paul da Praia da Vitória (PPV), Paul do Belo Jardim (PBJ) and Paul da Pedreira do Cabo da Praia (PPCP), in order to improve the knowledge on the bird diversity that occurs in this area, detect eventual new species for the Azores and monitor seasonal and between year variation on species abundance
|Title||Inventory of bird species in three coastal wetlands from Terceira Island (Azores)|
|Study Area Description||Terceira Island (area: 400.6 km²; elevation: 1,021.14 m) is one of the nine islands of the Azores archipelago, located in the North Atlantic, roughly at 38°43′49″N 27°19′10″W (Forjaz et al. 2004). The climate in the Azores is temperate oceanic, with regular and abundant rainfall, high levels of relative humidity and persistent western winds, mainly during the winter and autumn seasons (Azevedo et al. 2004).|
|Design Description||At the three wetland sites more than 788 days of observations were carried out for a total of ca. 11.820 h of direct observations. Each observation lasted 15 minutes in which every sighted bird is registered. These were made by experienced birdwatchers using a Swarovski 20-60 telescope and Opticron Verano HD 10-42 binocular. Photographs were made with a Canon 60D camera. Whenever needed, the following field guides were used: Collins (DATE) and|

Method step description:
- The data has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardised format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table (events) contains 2003 records and one data table extension also exists (occurrence), with 12528 records. The extension supplies extra information about the core record.
