The Minnesota River Valley Audubon Chapter (MRVAC) invites you to join us for:
“The Conservation of Golden-winged Warblers:
Nesting and Fledgling Behavior and Habitat”
Brett Howland: Master’s student at the University of Minnesota- Duluth
Thursday, May 25 @ 7:30 PM

Golden-winged Warblers have the smallest breeding population of any non-protected bird in the United States. Their decline has been attributed to many causes such as breeding habitat loss, competition with the Blue-winged Warbler, and invasion of the Brown-headed Cowbird. In Minnesota, they breed in early successional and shrubby wetland habitat. Because these birds experience high rates of nest failure and fledgling mortality, it is important to understand how habitat influences nest survival and fledgling.

We will meet in person at the Minnesota River Valley Wildlife Refuge Bloomington Visitor Center located at 3815 American Boulevard East in Bloomington, which is also accessible after a short walk from the METRO Blue Line (Hiawatha Light Rail) at American Blvd. Join us for a social gathering at 7:00 PM. All MRVAC meetings are free and open to the public.

The meeting will be simulcast on Zoom. To join the Zoom meeting click on the link below:
