The 1987 Boatload of Knowledge provided a unique opportunity to census the birds along the Ohio River from Pittsburgh to Louisville. A daily species count and determinations of species diversity on three sections of the River were done. While some difficulties were experienced during the censusing along the River, the overall results, field work plus a literature and information search, point to differences in bird species diversity along the Ohio River. The diversity of birds species corresponds to differences observed in the habitat along the sampled sections of the Ohio River.
