ResearchThe Refuge staff encourages technical research from qualified institutions, such as the University of Montana, in order to gain more knowledge about the wildlife species managed here. Researchers shown here with yellow warblers are monitoring songbird productivity and survivorship as part of larger regional and national programs. Other research projects include biological control of undesirable weeds, and cowbird parasitism of songbird nests. In addition, Refuge staff monitor local populations of osprey, colonial-nesting water birds, waterfowl, shorebirds, and white-tailed deer.
