It is year 5 of this project and I am once again writing to request your 
help and participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves 
recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs.Our lab is trying to 
determine what role song can play in understanding migratory 
connectivity in this species.We are interested in whether different song 
populations of the Mourning Warbler (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia, 
Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective 
breeding areas.Here is a link to a map with previous years’ results 
based on recordings from over 100 birders.

All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some 
luck.Videos with recordings are also helpful.The web page link below 
describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in 
more detail.Please send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound 
Lab (jpitocch AT

There is also a link to a recent national Audubon Society story on this 

Audubon Society reporting

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