Interested in contributing data to the Yellow-billed Loon Geodatabase?

We welcome all available information on distribution and abundance, including recent and older information, incidental observations, and data from systematic surveys. Data submission guidelines can be found here.

We have prepared a spreadsheet and two template databases that we hope will facilitate data submission. Use of a template for data submission is optional.  The spreadsheet is available as an Excel Workbook (xls) and the template databases are available as an Esri ArcGIS v 10.1 or v 9.3 file geodatabase.
