This report reviews the history of Summer Bird Surveys on Vancouver Island (2000 to 2005) and the Queen Charlotte Islands (2001 to 2005).

This report summarizes: 1) 23 permanent routes (each with 50 survey stations) on Vancouver Island, each with six continuous survey years; 2) 6 permanent routes (each with 50 survey stations) on the Queen Charlotte Islands each with five continuous survey years; 3) patterns of species occurrence among regions, transects, and years; and 4) trends for various species occurring in TFL 39, Block 2.
