2020 Lake Erie Bass Islands Avian Research Report

Lake Erie Islands ConservancyWe are so excited to share with you our 2020 Lake Erie Bass Islands Avian Research Report from Tom Bartlett. It includes the last years bird banding data as well as a compilation of the now 18 years of bird banding on the Bass Islands. This work has been so important in documenting bird migration on the islands and assisting us with receiving grants to protect migratory habitat!

A good winter read on these cold days coming up while we are waiting for ice!
