“Heron Tracking”.
Did you ever wonder where Maine’s
Great Blue Herons go in winter, and
what path they travel to get there?
Since 2016, Maine department of Inland fisheries & Wildlife has deployed
lightweight GPS tracking devices
on Great Blue Herons to follow their
movements during nesting, migration, and wintering.
Hear all about these majestic birds,
how over 100 volunteers have been
monitoring their colonies for the
past 15 years, and how students are
integral to tracking their movements
within and beyond state lines.
Danielle is Maine Dept. of Inland
Fisheries & Wildlife’s species expert
on secretive marsh birds, colonial
wading birds, common loons, and
black terns. Over the past 15 years,
she has devoted a great deal of effort
to heron surveys and research,
including coordination of a volunteer
monitoring program called the Heron
Observation Network of Maine.
