Council of Ohio Audubon Chapters (COAC) News
COAC, of which Western Cuyahoga Audubon is a member, has reached and exceeded its fundraising goal to help support bird banding stations in Nicaragua through The Institute for Bird Populations’ (IBP) Monitoring Overwinter Survival Initiative (MoSI). Seven Ohio Chapters pledged funds for the Ometepe banding station located on an island in Lake Nicaragua. Additional funds will go toward assisting the Los Guatuzos National Park banding station.Funds will be used to purchase equipment and support the staff.
Recall that most of the migrant songbirds we enjoy in our area in the spring and summer, spend the winter months in central or south America. Research on these migrants on their wintering grounds is crucial for understanding the needs of birds during the non-breeding season.
