Researchers are working this summer to recapture the male golden-winged warblers that were banded and fitted with tiny geo-locators last year. The data collected will reveal their post-breeding and migration travels. This information will assist with work to reverse the decline in the golden-winged warbler population. Partnerships with the University of Minnesota- Crookston and American Bird Conservancy are helping us learn more and provide more healthy habitat needed for this warbler to thrive.
