Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
My lab is currently conducting a study of habitat selection and migratory connectivity of Rusty Blackbird during stopover in western Lake Erie. Part of the project is to use stable isotopes to determine winter and breeding origins of birds using the region during migration. We are trying to connect with migration stations in other parts of the range that would be willing to collect feathers for this project. If you know of a contact or operate such a station please contact me here or at tonra.1 'at' osu.edu.
