Robin's Nest - Land Birds at Risk

Land Birds At Risk in Working Forests – Webinar

Tuesday, March 30, 2021, 7‐8 p.m,  Dr. Cindy Staicer, Dalhousie  – Online via Zoom

Learn about a new project to develop and test Beneficial  Management Practices (BMPs) for landbird Species at Risk breeding in our working forests. The focus is on the Canada Warbler, Olive‐sided Flycatcher, and Rusty Blackbird in  Nova Scotia, plus the Eastern Wood‐Pewee and Common  Nighthawk in SWNS. Recovery of their populations depends on access to quality breeding habitats.

We are looking for forest owners,  managers, foresters, or contractors who may be interested in becoming involved with the project. Involvement could range from attending workshops or field trips;  participating in the development of operational guidelines; or allowing a  trial of BMPs for these species on land that you own or manage.

BMPs can help landowners and forestry operators integrate the maintenance or creation of key habitat features for successful breeding into forest management planning and forestry operations.

We are also looking for volunteers to help find these birds and to document their breeding status on test and control sites.

You are invited to learn more about the project by joining the webinar with Dr. Staicer from 7  to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 30.

Webinar agenda:
• Introduction to the project
• Overview of the species and their habitat needs
• Examples of potential BMPs
• How you can get involved

Advance registration is required.
