Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus) by Sean Graesser

Posted on Dec 7, 2013

Apart from all of the locals Sean has been meeting some familiar friends in Costa Rica. His new Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus) pal could have been nesting in your backyard this summer but it’s spending the winter deep in Central America. Banding and research of many U.S. and Canadian breeding species on their winter grounds is vital to their overall conservation as they spend about half of their lives away from our borders. If we care about protecting them we must have the full picture and conduct international efforts in doing so.
