New Video Features Migratory Bird Tracking

A new video provides a glimpse into innovative field work funded by BOEM and administered by the USFWS Northeast Region Migratory Bird program on several shorebird/coastal bird species in the mid-Atlantic region relative to effects of offshore wind energy development.

Through the partnership, UMass Amherst doctoral student Pamela Loring is studying these endangered coastal birds, fitting mini transmitters onto plovers and terns and tracking their flights with 17 antenna towers along the Northeast coast.
