BIRD SPECIES

 

Dr. Bondar is viewing lives of migratory bird species from several migratory corridors. The #SpaceForBirds research project will follow the birds along their migratory pathways and to their non-breeding seasonal areas, capturing examples of these habitats using photography from close-up studies to aerial views to space-based images of the migratory tracks.

Each species has its own page:

CURLEW SANDPIPER BLACK-TAILED GODWIT
LESSER FLAMINGO PIPING PLOVER
SPRAGUE’S PIPIT RED KNOT
WHOOPING CRANE
