Migrant Landbird Study Group

Promoting collaborative research for migratory landbirds across flyways

I am an aspiring ornithologist (yuhina08), trained in macroecology, biogeography and phylogeography. I am curious about how come we don’t see all kinds of birds everywhere, especially long-distance migrants since they fly so well! This is part of what I am trying to investigate during my PhD at CMEC (University of Copenhagen) by linking dispersal, migration, colonization and species diversity, with field work site in the Himalayas, where I track Phylloscopus occipitalis.
