Wolf Ridge–a Bird Breeding Hot Spot

In this recording of a live virtual event on Sunday, June 27, 2021, experience how we listen for, see, and count some of the key bird species found in the boreal and maple forest of Wolf Ridge property, and how avian research helps forest managers make decisions for wildlife. For nearly 30 years, Wolf Ridge has been monitoring the health of its bird populations as part of the nationwide MAPS project.

Wildlife Biologist Dave Grosshuech, Ornithologist Danielle Kaschube of the Institute For Bird Populations are special guests joining our own Science Project Coordinator Peter Harris and hummingbird bander, Lori Walewski. Guest stars include a pileated woodpecker and magnolia warbler!
