We are looking for your help this spring, summer, and fall!
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service- Migratory Bird Management Program, Alaska Department of Fish and Game-Threatened, Endangered, and Diversity Program, and collaborators from across Canada are currently marking adult Lesser Yellowlegs in an effort to determine apparent adult survival and nest site fidelity. In addition, a proportion of birds carry leg-mounted light-level geolocators or Argos-GPS backpacks. To date, all birds marked in Alaska were banded in Anchorage, but they could potentially migrate further north.
Please keep an eye out for any banded Lesser Yellowlegs and report all sighting to the email listed on the attached flyer.
