About This Event

Join Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Island Heritage Trust  for another Friends from the Field Webinar!

Did you ever wonder where Maine’s Great Blue Herons go in winter, and what path they travel to get there? Since 2016, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife has deployed lightweight GPS tracking devices on Great Blue Herons to follow their movements during nesting, migration, and wintering. This technology has revealed impressive migrations sometimes over long stretches of open ocean and for over 60 hours non-stop to Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba, and Haiti! Hear all about these majestic birds, how over 100 volunteers have been monitoring their colonies for the past 13 years, and how students are integral to tracking their movements within and beyond state lines.
Danielle D'Auria is the MDIFW Waterbird Biologist and focuses on statewide populations of colonial wading birds, secretive marsh birds, black terns, and loons, as well as land management issues affecting wetland habitats.
