Baixo Sabor: Birds - Construction and Reservoir Filling Phases - Vilariça Stream (MC1) [2013-2014]

The dataset contains records of terrestrial, aquatic and riparian birds (Aves) collected in the lower valley of River Sabor (NE Portugal), in the scope of the monitoring programs of the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dams (AHBS), promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A.. Specifically, the dataset relates to monitoring carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of measures implemented to mitigate the impacts of AHBS. In this case, the mitigation measures refer to "MC1 - Compensatory Habitat of Vilariça Stream". The dataset includes the results of bird surveys made in the Vilariça stream from January 2013 to September 2014. Sampling was performed in selected points distributed along the stream, up to 5 km upstream of the mouth. The presence and identity of bird species were assessed by visual and/or acoustic observations, with binoculars. The records include taxa identified at the species or genus levels.
