Long-term bird monitoring in the Maya Mountains of Belize
A presentation by Mathieu Charette, Director of the Toucan Ridge Bird Observatory (TRBO) on Dec. 13, 2021.TRBO works with both Neotropical migrants (from N. 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. TRBO also investigates migratory connectivity through the MOTUS initiative. Here Mathieu presents the results of 9 yrs of bird banding at T.R.B.O. 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.
