Annual migration of landbirds across the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) presents a unique opportunity to examine extrinsic processes operating at various spatial scales in determining animal distributions. Our objectives were to comprehensively quantify bird stopover densities across the northern GOM coast and model broad-scale factors explaining distributional patterns. We used weather surveillance radars to measure reflectivity of birds aloft at onset of nocturnal migratory flights and estimate bird… CONTINUE READING
