Last week, American Oystercatcher Recovery Campaign Coordinator Shiloh Schulte and WHSRN Conservation Specialist Meredith Gutowski Morehouse banded three oystercatcher chicks in Winthrop, MA. 

The birds were the chicks of an oystercatcher with the bands "Yellow 25" that Shiloh banded as a fledgling in 2004 in Chatham, MA. Yellow 25 and the Winthrop oystercatchers are a great example of the kind of knowledge scientists can gain from a large banding and resighting effort.

“Through Manomet’s landbird banding data, we have detected an earlier arrival (by 0.78 days per decade) in all spring migrants since 1970, a trend which correlates closely with measures of climate change.”
