Studying migratory connectivity of shorebirds on the Texas coast

Scientists from the Migratory Bird Center of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute are using transmitters to track the movements of shorebirds–the long-billed curlew, red knot, marbled godwit and black-legged plover–along the south coast of Texas. Shorebirds as a group have declined by more than 50 percent since 1968. These scientists seek answers as to what is causing their population decline.
