The seasonal migration of songbirds connects New England to the tropics and reminds us that the world's ecosystems operate as a seamless whole. Current evidence suggests that some songbirds may be declining due to habitat loss and other environmental stresses. An understanding of forest thrushes in their breeding grounds, in their wintering grounds, and along their migration routes, can lead to informed decisions that help to conserve songbird populations as well as their forested habitats. Appropriate for middle and high school students. Please contact the institute directly at education@vinsweb.org or at (802) 359-5000.
