December 13, 2021: Long-term bird monitoring in the Maya Mountains of Belize presented by Mathieu Charette.
In 2012, the Toucan Ridge Bird Observatory (TRBO), the avian branch of the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society (TREES) Research Center in Belize, was formed to investigate the long-term avian biodiversity of the Maya Mountains in Belize. TRBO works with both Neotropical migrants (from North America) and austral migrants (From South America), as well as Belizean resident birds. TRBO's long-term monitoring focuses on a combination of walking transects, point-count surveys, citizen science programs (such as eBird), and bird banding, often through the MoSI program. In addition, TRBO investigates migratory connectivity through the MOTUS initiative. In this presentation, TRBO Director Mathieu Charette will present the results of 9 years of bird banding at TRBO and information about the development of a bird banding culture and capacity building in Belizean bird banders and the evolution of a National Belize Bird Banding lab.
