Monthly Meeting: A Day in the Life of a Shorebird in South Carolina
Shorebirds are an incredible group of birds that are important for wetland ecosystems and undergo one of nature’s craziest phenomena – migration! But shorebirds are in trouble – their populations are experiencing drastic declines and many species are threatened or endangered. Ellen Jamieson is a Master’s student at Trent University. Born and raised in Peterborough, she was encouraged to learn about nature and immerse herself in the outdoors from a young age. She is studying shorebird habitat use and feeding ecology on Bulls Island in South Carolina.
