Shorebird researchers are out to the fields

Posted by Gyorgy Szimuly/WorldWaders

It is mid May and shorebird researchers are getting excited by being in the field and waiting for the migrants at stop-over sites. The Delaware Bay is among those very important staging sites where shorebirds stops and picks up more energy to be able to continue their marathon jounrey to the Artctic breeding gorunds.

The recent video made by The State of Delaware’s Channel wonderfully describes what BTO’s and Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife’s researchers are doing in the field and how they handle Red Knots and other shorebirds for colour banding as well as for other studies. The movie talks for itself.
