Each fall, billions of songbirds leave Canada on an epic journey to their 
far-away wintering grounds in Central and South America where many live in 
tropical forests shared by toucans, howler monkeys, and jaguars. Dozens of 
species have experienced serious, long-term population declines that are driven 
in part by the threats that these birds face on migration and while in the 
tropics.  But only recently has it been possible to track the migration of 
individual songbirds over part, or all, of their migration journey. Bridget 
Stutchbury talks about her research on uncovering the mysteries of songbird 
migration behaviour, and what this tells about the threats they face during 
their travels.

Bridget Stutchbury is a Distinguished Research Professor of Biology at York 
University in Toronto, Ontario, where she is in charge of the Stutchbury Lab of 
Behavioural and Conservation Ecology.  See her website <> . She is the author 
of the books Silence of the Songbirds and The Bird Detective and is featured in 
the movie The Messenger.

Hope to “see" you then.
