Grassland Birds in New England: Causes of Decline and Reasons to be Optimistic

How do we explain the disappearance of Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark, and other birds of our farmlands? Dr. Noah Perlut will explore the life histories of resident grassland species and discuss how their ecology is affected by agricultural management. He will also describe diverse management options that can benefit both land managers and birds.

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
