NJ Audubon - Delaware Bay Shorebirds (#59)
Short name: NJA-DEBay
Short description: Track Semipalmated Sandpipers staging in Delaware Bay during spring migration
Description: The objectives are several. First, we aim to document habitat use, movement patterns and length of stay in Semipalmated Sandpipers (SESA)staging in Delaware Bay the during spring migration staging periods. For these data needs, we will deploy tags during the early part of the staging period.

We will use length of stay data to estimate "survival" for birds during the staging period. These estimates, along with survival estimates from breeding and wintering areas will be used to develop develop a spatially explicit, full life-cycle model to assess the relative contribution of drivers that underlie SESA population declines. The model will provide insight into when during the annual cycle Atlantic Flyway SESA are subject to the most detrimental threats and will be a tool for developing conservation and management strategies that abate declines and for making decisions about allocating resources to implement these strategies.

We will also deploy tags towards the end of the staging period to help characterize routes, stopover site use and stopover duration during migration to and from the breeding grounds.
