    "The purpose of this project was to investigate shorebird use of the Great Bay Estuary during fall and spring migratory periods... Observations were made from a boat... Shorelines of Great Bay, Little Bay and the rivers were followed... Scanning was done with binoculars, eyes alone or spotting scope depending on distance, wind, light, and precipitation... Observations were made from land to supplement observations from water... Data were collected and recorded during July through June during observations from water and land included: 1. species; 2. numbers of individuals; 3. activities/behavior; 4. date, time, tide; 6. temperature, wind, cloud cover; 7. specific location; 8. areas of intense horseshoe crab egg laying; 9 observations of other species of particular concern... We attempted to examine all available types of habitat in the estuary without prejudice from preconceived ideas and to examine these areas at different parts of the tidal cycle and time of day."--leaves [1]-4.
