Club Meeting: Kirkland’s Warbler with Tammy Richard, M.Sc

Our presenter is Wildlife/Species at Risk Biologist at Garrison Petawawa.

The Kirtland’s Warbler is an endangered song bird that was considered to be one the rarest birds in the world.  In Canada there were only 18 documented sightings in breeding habitat up until 2005.  In 2006, it was re-discovered at Garrison Petawawa (formerly CFB Petawawa).  Since then, the Department of National Defence has been surveying, monitoring, and protecting Kirtland’s Warblers.  Birds have been returning and nesting on the Army facility.
