Searching for Shorebirds

March 29, 2016

For the past 5 years I have been working in The Bahamas to map the distribution and abundance of shorebirds across the country as part of a team from the National Audubon Society.  The work has led to new discoveries for shorebirds that are threatened or those that biologists have declared as species of conservation concern and new areas protected for small, coastal birds that weigh a mere few ounces but embark on migrations that take them thousands of miles.  The most recent work was chronicled by the National Audubon Society and is featured on their website: Why Counting Piping Plovers in the Bahamas Is Harder Than It Sounds http://www.audubon.org/news/why-counting-piping-plovers-bahamas-harder-it-sounds
