BRI Publishes New Research on Songbird Migration

BRI research on Blackpoll Warbler migration was recently published in the journal, Ecology. The article, A boreal songbird's 20,000 km migration across North America and the Atlantic Ocean, describes how researchers used geolocators to document migration routes and stopover sites of the small songbird. Researchers found that breeding populations from as far as western Alaska make the long cross-continental flight, stopping on the Atlantic coast before journeying over the Atlantic Ocean to over-winter in South America. 

The article can be found at the publisher's website, here.
