Congrats to Senior Scientist Rick Johnson and co-authors Alex Prichard (ABR Senior Scientist), Ann Wildman (ABR emeritus), and Caryn Rea (ConocoPhillips Alaska) on their forthcoming Journal of Wildlife Management article, “Territory Occupancy by Breeding Yellow-billed Loons near Oil Development.” Their findings suggest that breeding pairs and broods of Yellow-billed Loons (Gavia adamsii) on the Colville River delta are resilient to levels of human activity at recently constructed oilfield facilities. The article is available on line; you can read it by clicking on this link. See also a summary of the article on our website here.
