Tracking Veery Migration Using Geolocators

BRI researchers applied geolocators to 15 Veeries at River Point Conservation Area in 2013 to track their migration and gather data about their wintering grounds. In the spring and summer of 2014 researchers recovered seven of those individuals. The data from the geolocators will be analyzed this fall and used to inform conservation efforts and to highlight the amazing behaviors of migratory songbirds.
