Description: The Kirtland’s Warbler was once the most endangered songbird in North America and was among the first species to be listed under the 1973 Endangered Species Act. This warbler species has been the target of intense research and conservation efforts primarily on its Michigan breeding grounds. Dr. Joseph Wunderle reviews the history of the imperiled warbler’s recovery and the cooperative efforts of various individuals and organizations which contributed to its successful recovery. This Wyncote Audubon Society meeting is open to the public in partnership with Upper Dublin Library.
