Ecology of the Endangered Nordmann's Greenshank
January 2019 - December 2021
- Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
The Nordmann's Greenshank is a critically endangered shorebird that breeds in far eastern Russia and migrates through and overwinters in east and southeast Asia. Little is known about this critically endangered species. We will work with Russian collaborators and the Wildlife Conservation Society to find and describe breeding areas and capture and mark birds. Resightings of marked birds can assist in determining migratory pathways and overwintering areas in the East Asian - Australasian Flyway.
