Long-term population data on birds can provide information on population trends, particularly for species of concern, but it can also provide information on ecosystem structure and function. Monitoring grassland birds is an effective method for assessing the condition of grassland ecosystems, which are amongst the most dynamic ecosystems in Canada. Grassland ecosystems include ecoregions such as bunchgrass, tall-grass prairies and shrubland, but also open forests such as open ponderosa pine and interior Douglas-fir forests. Grassland ecosystems are maintained by fire and grazing, and are threatened by tree encroachment, intensive agriculture, invasive species, use of pesticides, climate change and overgrazing and trampling by cattle.

Birds are the most diverse of land vertebrates and are an important indicator of ecosystem health. Large protected areas, such as Jasper National Park, provide important habitat for a wide range of bird species. Data collected can provide a number of ecological indices; for example, used to assess the effects of land use and climate change. Yearly data are collected at these sites using audio recorders to determine indices of bird diversity and occupancy trends to inform management.

Birds adapted to alpine ecosystems are often sensitive to habitat and climate changes because of their niche specialization. For example, birds that are specialized to breeding in colder alpine conditions may be outcompeted by more generalist species if warmer conditions arise. Yearly data are collected at these sites using audio recorders to determine indices of bird diversity and occupancy trends to inform management.
