NEWSLETTER FOCUSES ON CURLEW SEARCH, NEW ENGLAND FOREST BIRD SURVEY



The Common Redpoll was an irregular but sometimes common winter resident of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

The October newsletter of Bird Conservation Research, Inc. focused on the continued search for fall-migrating Eskimo Curlews occurring on the coast of Massachusetts.  It also provided an update on the Forest Bird Survey of Southern New England, which is now in the data analysis phase.  Computations of population densities and distributions are now complete, as are habitat analyses for the region.  The next step is publication of an atlas of forest bird resources for the region..

Also highlighted in the newsletter are video productions being prepared for the national AP Environmental Science curriculum.  Links to the latest versions of these videos are http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGVuPr0N2Hw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zk5kUx1_aC8.
