Researchers seek more clues about birds’ migration path

It was like finding a needle in a haystack — if the haystack could be anywhere in about 17 countries.

A Golden-winged Warbler captured by Michigan Technological University bird researcher Amber Roth on Jan. 25 had a small, silver band around its tiny leg. From its markings Roth learned the bird had been banded by a Rockford University researcher at a forest preserve in Illinois last Sept. 2. Roth, at the time, was at a private reserve created for Golden-winged Warblers on a coffee plantation in northern Nicaragua.
