A new field season of SELVA’s Crossing the Caribbean project is underway and already we have started to unveil this spring migration’s surprises. Interesting facts include the abundance of Tennessee Warblers, retraps from past years, raptors flying over the Darién and finally, the capture of an immature male Golden-winged Warbler. As a species that has experienced persistant population declines during the last 40 years, capture helps us understand a little more about its migration strategy in the Neotropics.
