"Prothonotary Warblers: A Swamp Canary in the Coal Mine"

Lecture September 2017 Image


SPEAKER: Erik Johnson, Director of Bird Conservation, Audubon Louisiana, Baton Rouge

Prothonotary Warblers are a familiar bird of southeastern U.S. swamps and bottomland forests during the summer, but their populations are declining faster than they are losing this habitat.

Audubon Louisiana has been working to understand why by studying their migration pathways using geolocators to understand connections between wintering and breeding populations.

This ground-breaking work has already identified new potential conservation priority regions in Central and South America to focus conservation efforts.

Learn about this remarkable migratory bird, and how you can get involved to help.
