Latest Black-throated Blue Warbler Stories
Wildlife Conservation Society Some species keeping their distance, while others cozy up to human neighbors As part of the study, scientists sampled the presence of 20 species of birds both near and far from 30 rural residences in the Adirondack Park. Calculating their occurrence at increasing distances from the residences, they determined that "human-adapted" species are 36 percent more likely to occur near the homes than in the surrounding mixed hardwood-conifer forests, and that...
A team of NASA-funded researchers has completed an experiment to remotely sense and predict where certain birds are most likely to live and breed.

The astonishing diversity of avian movement patterns, reproductive tactics, and survival rates creates rich opportunities for study, but also presents enormous challenges for explaining variation among life-history traits and dispersal.

Their breeding habitat is located in the interior of deciduous and mixed forests in eastern North America. These birds migrate to islands in the Caribbean and Central America.
