Every year the arrival of spring is marked by the migration of birds from their wintering grounds to the locations where they breed
Firstlight’s Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center and the Northfield Bird Club will hold a Songbird Migration virtual program on Tuesday, April 13th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. In this program, UMass researcher Jessica Tatten will give an update on her recent research exploring songbird migration in the Connecticut River Valley and where migratory birds stop to rest and refuel on their way north.
Jessica’s research explores where these songbirds stop, what types of habitat they use, what influences their decisions, and where they go once they depart. She will shed light on some of these questions and how a relatively new tracking technology helped provide answers.
Jessica Tatten has conducted research for the University of Massachusetts and Mass Audubon and recently completed her Master of Science degree in Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
This free, virtual program is co-sponsored by Firstlight’s Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center and the Northfield Bird Club.
