Songbird populations have been declining, apparently due to poor reproductive success and habitat degradation. This research, made possible by Conservancy donors, continues a decades-long tradition of collecting songbird banding data to guide future management of songbirds and their beautiful montane meadow habitats. The research also guides strategies on how to best protect them.

Project Notes

The joy of holding a songbird in your hand,€” to feel its heartbeat, sense the warmth of its body and really see it up close,€” inspires a career-long commitment to environmental conservation.
