About the Author(s)


Pamela Hunt received a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College in 1995 and is currently adjunct faculty at various small colleges in New Hampshire, doing ornithological consulting work, and attempting to form the Mascoma Lake Bird Observatory. Her current research interests include the winter ecology of Northern Waterthrushes, landscape-level effects on bird population trends in New England, and the winter ecology and behavior of Yellow-rumped Warblers. Current address: Mascoma Lake Bird Observatory, P.O. Box 289, Enfield, NH 03748. E-mail: MLBO@valley.net.

Bonita Eliason received a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 1986. She is currently Supervisor of the Natural Heritage and Nongame Research Program for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, a program with responsibility for research and conservation of native plants, plant communities, and native nongame animals. Current address: Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, 500 Lafayette Rd., Box 25, St. Paul, MN 55155. E-mail: .

William DeLuca received an M.S. from George Mason University and subsequently worked at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. He then received his Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts where he focused on the conservation and ecology of high elevation birds in White Mountains, NH. William is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the Landscape Ecology Lab at UMass where he is developing species-habitat and climate models to identify areas of high conservation priority based on predictions of landscape and climate change. Current address: Department of Environmental Conservation, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003. E-mail wdeluca@eco.umass.edu

Rebecca Holberton, Professor in the School of Biology and Ecology at the University of Maine, received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Albany studying the ecology, physiology, and behavior of the Dark-eyed Junco, under the guidance of Dr. Kenneth Able. Dr. Holberton's research includes the ecological physiology of migration, with particular interest in understanding different migration strategies and how the migration period acts as an important nexus among key periods of an animal's annual cycle. She also studies seabird breeding and wintering biology. Dr. Holberton is founder of the Northeast Regional Migration Monitoring Network and has helped guide legislation regarding wetland habitat conservation and offshore wind energy development in the region. Current address: Laboratory of Avian Biology, University of Maine, Orono, ME 04469. E-mail: rebecca.holberton@maine.edu

Pamela Hunt received a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College in 1995 and is currently Avian Conservation Biologist for the Audubon Society of New Hampshire. Her current research interests include the biology and conservation of nightjars, effects of management on shrubland dependant birds, and the distribution and conservation of dragonflies and damselflies. She also functions as the "state ornithologist" for New Hampshire, in which capacity she assists the N.H. Fish and Game Department with monitoring, species prioritization, and conservation planning as they relate to nongame birds. Current address: New Hampshire Audubon, 84 Silk Farm Road, Concord, NH 03301. E-mail: phunt@nhaudubon.org.
