Post Release Songbird Study
Over seven species of non-migratory songbirds were utilized for this study. Hand-reared or rehabilitated birds were released into the wild near homes and bird feeders where they could easily be observed.
The study was designed to represent species of varying ecology and habits. Species studied included robins, blue jays, wrens, bluebirds, mourning doves, woodpeckers and cardinals.
All birds were taken into the study in their hatch year at fledgling stage or younger and hand-reared within guidelines established for the study.
Area residents were encouraged to get involved and help locate (re-sight) and/or observe the songbirds released by the study.
