Article S1: Carcass survey data sheet template
Researchers may use this template to customize site-specific data sheets for use by field workers. Simply edit the template in a word processor by entering the study site name and the name of each study building. One printed page includes blank data fields for three study buildings.
Article S2. Field carcass survey information sheet
This is a one page 'cheat sheet' that summarizes for field workers the fundamental aspects of carcass survey protocol. The sheet includes lists of information about field supplies needed each day, carcass surveys, processing carcasses, and data sheets. Field workers should include a hard copy of this information sheet in their field supplies and refer to it before, during, and after carcass surveys.
Article 3: Bird carcass identification tags
A hard copy of this form should be included in the supplies that field workers carry during carcass surveys. Bird carcass identification tags should be cut out of the page with scissors, filled out in the field with identifying information (including building name and carcass ID number), and included with each bird carcass. See section "8. Carcass Collection and Containment" for details.
