We're an Audubon facility, so, of course, a lot of scientists study birds here, but that's not all, not even the most common thing. The Audubon Sanctuary served as a site for researchers to measure the health of Black Rail populations and to examine possible strengths along the coast. The Featherbed Lane Important Bird Area (IBA) bird girdling station is a research and monitoring project located in the mountainous region of Sourland, in central New Jersey. Started by biologist Hannah Suthers in 1977, the FLBBS is one of the oldest bird banding stations in the United States.
The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, across the Americas through science, promotion, education and conservation on the ground. To better understand birds and the places they need, the National Audubon Society asks community scientists to conduct bird counts starting May 5 (Great World Day) and until the end of June at priority locations along western rivers, and particularly in the Colorado River basin.
