Grassland Bird Migration Study

December 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Where Do They Go and How Do They Get There? Unlocking the Migration Mysteries of Two Grassland Bird Species; the Grasshopper Sparrow and Upland Sandpiper

Grassland birds are among the most threatened avian populations in the United States. Loss of habitat both on their breeding and wintering grounds is a major factor in that decline.

At the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, Conservation Biologist Jason Hill is helping to lead research into the habits of grassland birds, specifically what happens to them during the migratory and non-breeding time of their lives.

Jason’s talk will focus on two of the four grassland species that are the focus of VCE’s ongoing research regarding the non-breeding habits of grassland birds; the secretive grasshopper sparrow and the prairie dwelling upland sandpiper. He’ll present the latest research into their lives and how new technology is helping to enable new insights to bolster those studies.
