Do observer differences in bird detection affect inferences from large-scale ecological studies?

Use of multiple observers in large-scale bird surveys is often unavoidable. But how significant are observer differences in bird detection? Do observer effects significantly influence inferences about environmental factors on birds? We conducted a field experiment to quantify differences between observers in the detection of birds at Booderee National Park, south-eastern Australia.
