The Painted Bunting Observer Team, or PBOT, is a group of citizen scientists in Florida and the Carolinas who provide data which helps develop strategies to sustain the Bunting’s population. PBOT is a project from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and they need volunteers to join the team. If you’re in the Carolinas or Florida and want to know more, read all about the project and then become a member!

    Hello! Glad to see your coverage of this. Last summer, I worked as a field tech for a MS student at Clemson on a PABU project. I may go back to Spring Island, SC in May and take over the MS project as my own. They’re a great study species; this project measures reproductive success and management techniques.
