TRACKING KIRTLAND’S

One of North America’s rarest breeding birds has now been tracked on migration.  Using tiny recording devices scientists “followed” about two dozen Kirtland’s Warblers through a full year, including their round-trip migratory loop between Michigan and the Central Bahamas.

One bird went to Cuba instead of the Bahamas.  Many of the  birds stopped in southern Ontario and later in the Carolinas before heading over the Atlantic.
