Incorporating lightweight synthetic lines, nylon fish netting and sailboat and fishing hardware, the drop net is an effective, portable method to trap many different species of shorebirds. During 2006 and 2007 drop nets were used to safely capture more than 265 targeted shorebirds in habitats in North and South America. Shorebirds captured included Calidris sandpipers, Charadrius sandpipers, Buff-breasted Sandpiper (Tringites subruficollis), and dowitchers (Limnodromus).
