Join Jessica Tatten on Tuesday, April 13th from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. for a VIRTUAL update on her recent research exploring songbird migration in the Connecticut River Valley. The Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge provides an important place for migratory birds to rest and refuel on their way north to their breeding grounds. Her research explores where these songbirds stop, what types of habitat they use, what influences their decisions, and where they go once they depart. Jess will shed light on some of these questions and how a relatively new tracking technology helped provide answers. Jessica Tatten has conducted research for the University of Massachusetts and Mass Audubon and recently completed her Master of Science degree in Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This free, virtual program is co-sponsored by Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center and the Northfield Bird Club.
