Birds in North America are facing considerable population decline, with over half of all species declining in the past half-century. This is particularly true for the Golden-winged Warbler, a neotropical songbird that has experienced over a 70% population decline since 1966. Due to their imperiled status, they are currently being considered for listing under the Endangered Species Act. To better understand drivers behind their population decline, and to aid in giving an informed listing decision, we have initiated a range-wide collaborative effort to assess annual survival of both males and (the more elusive) females through the use of radio telemetry. Join Emily Filiberti, a Master’s candidate at the University of Maine, to learn more about her contribution to this widespread effort through deploying and tracking these NanoTags on Golden-winged Warblers in Oneida County.
