Ten years tracking the migrations of small landbirds: Lessons learned in the golden age of bio-logging
The Auk Ornithological Advances

By Emily McKinnon and Oliver Love

Since miniature light-level geolocators were first deployed on small songbirds (2007), our understanding of migration for this group has grown exponentially. In this paper, 127 studies were reviewed that used geolocators to track small landbirds.

13 - 16 December, Gdansk, Poland

A joint conference of the "Birds as Early Warning Systems" of the Poland–South Africa collaboration project, the Migrant Landbird Study Group, and the Polish Network of Bird Ringing Stations (KSSOP) - more info here

We are sorry to inform you that the planned EOU-MLSG satellite symposium "Landbird Migration in Different Worlds" at the IOC congress in Vancouver has been cancelled. The cancellation is due to an unexpected shift in timeslot as well as an overlap with a conflicting workshop on geolocator analyses. Instead, we encourage everyone interested, to sign up for the geolocator workshop organized by Eli Bridge, Simeon Lisovski, and Eldar Rakhimberdiev. Sign up here. The MLSG ExCo will still be present at the IOC to raise our profile.

You might have seen or heard about it elsewhere already, but Inspire4Nature is advertising 15 well-funded PhD positions including one specifically on Afro-Palearctic migrant bird declines, please find more information here
