The MD wishes to congratulate Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory (LSLBO) staff members Tyler Flockhart and Richard Krikum for their collaboration on a recently-published paper regarding the decline of the Canada Warbler.
Recently posted on Nature.com, the Canada Warbler paper incorporated data from the Boreal Bird Centre's Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship (MAPS) program. Tyler Flockhart, Director of Field Research for LSLBO, is a co-author on this paper. Well done Tyler and Richard!
MAPS is the Boreal Bird Centre's breeding bird program that occurs during June and July. It forms part of a North American wide monitoring program coordinated by the Institute of Bird Populations. The LSLBO has been part of the MAPS program for the past 24 years.
