Uncertainty in estimating a true population parameter from survey data is a result of imperfect detection, imperfect observation, spatial and temporal variation, and sampling error. Some level of uncertainty is inevitable in all surveys. We discuss the sources of uncertainty in surveys of bird counts and show how we have used Monte Carlo simulations to illustrate the effect of uncertainty.
