Tennessee Telemetry Stations

We'll see how high technology may solve the mysteries of migration and maybe help save our birds... Plus, show you ways to keep birds safe at your home.

Hi friends… welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall…

Our birds are disappearing.

According to the peer review journal, Science Magazine… we’ve lost 3 billion North American birds in the past half century. That’s a 30 percent decrease in the population. More than half of those deaths have happened during migration.

And researchers are turning to technology to try and figure out just what’s going on

Obviously, it’s going to take a while before there are enough telemetry stations to provide valid research results.

But there are already some known causes for the loss of birds… and a few things we can do right now to make a difference.
