Humboldt Bay: Premier Site of Conservation Importance to Shorebirds Along the Pacific Americas Flyway
Date: 07/09/2021
Time: 07:00:00 PM
Description: As quintessential migrants, many shorebirds wend their way between distant breeding and non-breeding grounds, stopping at key wetlands to refuel. Humboldt Bay is one of those critical sites along the Pacific Americas Flyway. Recently, the bay received added recognition within the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network for its year-round importance to shorebirds. Presenter Mark Colwell will summarize the information justifying this recognition and address conservation threats that jeopardize shorebirds populations.

Mark Colwell is a professor in the Wildlife Department at Humboldt State University (HSU) where he has taught since 1989. Mark began studying shorebirds as a graduate student, working on Wilson’s Phalarope and Spotted Sandpiper. HSU honored Mark as Scholar of the Year in 2007 and Outstanding Professor in 2013. He finished a 20-yr study of Snowy Plovers in 2019 and continues to work to promote Humboldt Bay’s importance to shorebirds.
