Curlews Studied in Basin

Written by on June 25, 2018

Researchers are studying threatened curlews in the Big Horn Basin area.
Research assistant Madeline Voshell says curlews nesting in the area are having great success despite poachers and numerous predators. Voshell told the Powell Tribune that nesting this year has been successful in all the nests found by researchers in the area.
A team of scientists and research assistants is studying the bird from its wintering grounds in Mexico to its important breeding grounds in the grasslands of midwest and western states in the U.S. The Big Horn Basin is considered an unusual area for curlews to thrive.
The study will end sometime next week. Curlews will be migrating back to Mexico and southern California by the end of July.
