Hi Carol,
I wasn't told the head I'm working on was part of any survey. I believe
it's just personal data. I honestly didn't know of a survey. Dr. Kollias
said he was interested in step sections of the nares and I'm not having a
very good time sectioning the beak. I must in the lab where Nair doesn't
want to work. 
I asked my favorite rehabilitator and she said the Lab of Ornithology is
conducting the survey. They're in the woods, way off campus.
Have a great day!
Mary Lou
