Return of the songbirds
Did you know that the coast of Texas is a critical spot for migratory birds in the U.S. and Canada? The Migratory Connectivity Project journeys to Mad Island, Texas annually to study songbirds returning from their tropical wintering grounds and share this experience with local schoolchildren.
Understanding these species and teaching the next generation about them is critical to their survival.

Through the Migratory Connectivity Project, led by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and Georgetown University and together with the National Audubon Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology, we have been working on an important and exciting book entitled “Discovering Unknown Migrations: The Atlas of Migratory Connectivity for the Birds of North America.” The Atlas will be published by Princeton University Press and will fill an enormous knowledge gap about the migratory connectivity for the birds of North America.
