The Migratory Bird Research Group is at it again. Our long-term banding site in Fort Morgan, Alabama has been up and running for a few weeks now and migrants are coming through. Lab mate @tjzenzal is crew leader for the site while he is doing his dissertation research on Ruby-throated Hummingbird migration.
I will be starting some fall field work this weekend on Dauphin Island, Alabama. I will be attempting to catch one of my focal species, the Swainson’s Thrush, but will likely get many more migrating songbirds as they pass through.
Stay tuned to our work as I will do my best to keep you updated.
