Maine Audubon

Tracking Maine’s Great Blue Herons Beyond State Lines

with Danielle D'Auria


Members: $8, Nonmembers: $10

Location: Fields Pond, Holden

Did you ever wonder where Maine’s Great Blue Herons go in winter?  In 2016, five adult Great Blue Herons were outfitted with lightweight GPS tracking devices, then released to allow researchers to follow their movements during nesting, migration, and wintering. Two of the five Maine birds migrated to Florida, one to the Bahamas, one to Cuba, and one flew all the way to Haiti!  Hear all about these majestic birds, how over 100 volunteers have been monitoring their colonies for the past 10 years, and how students are integral to tracking their movements within and beyond state lines.
