Hear Dr. Buler’s comments about a new paper by former lab member Kyle Horton and others at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology examining the impacts of the Tribute in Light memorial in New York City on migrating birds. It recently aired on NPR’s All Things Considered here http://www.npr.org/2017/10/05/555949789/light-pollution-can-impact-noctural-bird-migration
We just received funding for a new project titled “A multiscale approach to understanding migratory land bird habitat use of functional stopover habitat types and management efforts” in collaboration with University of Southern Mississippi, US Geological Survey, and US Fish and Wildlife Service. Congrats to Dr. TJ Zenzal for leading this effort!
Check out this blog from Smithsonian’s Conservation Biology Institute about our recent review paper on the state of knowledge about landbird migration around the Gulf of Mexico. This was a collaborative effort among scientists and conservationists that grew from the research symposium Synthesizing science to inform conservation of songbird migrants around the Gulf of Mexico at the 2016 North American Ornithological Conference.
