ANOUNCEMENTS: HELP NEEDED WITH PRAIRIE WARBLER SURVEY
If you see/hear a Prairie Warbler ANYTIME this spring or summer, in ANY part
of the state, please call or email Katie Kahl with the most specific
location description possible. GPS points are best, but an accurate
location description (i.e. distance and direction from the nearest road or
crossroads) works too. Your reports will help in predicting where Prairie
Warblers will choose to breed and assist in the conservation of Michigan
If you have Prairie Warblers to report or any questions about the study,
please call me at 517-896-7372 or email Katie Kahl at kahlkath at msu.edu.
Your help is extremely appreciated! Thank you.
