We just wrapped up the first field season for the "30-Year Bird Project" in northern Maine. I'm excited to be collaborating with old friends and colleagues to return to a landscape where we all worked nearly 30 years ago investigating the relationship between songbird communities and managed forests. The Portland Press Herald featured the project on the front page of the Sunday paper. UNH Summer Research Technician Kelsi Anderson spent the field season working with Tufts University PhD student Jonah Levy doing songbird point counts and collecting vegetation data on 120 plots in remote northern Maine. Already looking forward to a bigger field season in 2022!
