Migratory Birds Focus of Workshop in Acadia National Park

Rebecca Holberton, University of Maine professor and migratory bird expert, will host the Northeast Regional Migration Monitoring Network’s annual meeting April 19–20 in Moore Auditorium at Schoodic Education and Research Center Institute in Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor.

Friday’s presentations and discussions include studies of bird and bat migration patterns, assessing risks of offshore wind development, new tracking technologies, and developing research priorities for the region.

Saturday’s hands-on workshops include bird-banding, passive acoustic monitoring and tracking technologies.

Northeast Regional Migration Monitoring Network, which comprises state and federal resource agencies, academic institutions and private foundations from Atlantic Canada to the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, was formed in 2010 and supports management and conservation of migratory birds.
