Wind Turbine

Lynnfield Marsh & Charles River Marshes, Lynnfield/Wakefield/Medford

Conducted intensive surveys for marsh-nesting birds in these extensive wetlands. Pre-dawn starts required navigating through dense cattails and paddling open water sections to conduct audio-response surveys at multiple points throughout each marsh. 

Berkshire East Wind Turbine, Charlemont

Monitoring the impact of a newly installed wind turbine on birds and bats. Early morning surveys focus on searching for injured animals while seasonal audio surveys help us describe how the turbine is affecting birds’ use of the site.
