Bird Monitoring and Habitat Assemblages

By identifying the song of a warbling vireo (Vireo gilvus) in a riparian stream habitat, or that of a black-throated green warbler (Setophaga virens) in a mixed coniferous-hardwood forest, an observer can deduce characteristics about the habitat. Monitoring birds in an area over a period of time can help us understand the habitat type, quality, and management. This class will explore assemblages between Massachusetts Natural Community types and the bird species found in those community types, as well as structural components that are critical for these bird species.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes.
