It is year 4 of this project and I am writing once again to post an opportunity to participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs.  I am interested in whether different song populations of Mourning Warblers (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective areas of the species’ breeding range.   All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some luck.  The web page link below describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in more detail.   There is also a link to the map with previous year’s results based on recordings from many volunteers.

Here is a link to the recent national Audubon Society story on this research.

I would really appreciate your help and contributions this year to this Citizens Science Project.
