Birds in tropical montane forest face unprecedented challenges in a future dominated by climate change and habitat fragmentation. Our goal is to provide comprehensive data regarding the distributions, reproductive biology, and movements of montane birds within a region of extreme topographic, climatic, and habitat complexity in northern Peru. The project was initiated in 2015 by graduate students, Ian Ausprey and Felicity Newell working with Dr. Scott Robinson, Director of the Ordway Lab of Ecosystem Conservation at the Florida Museum of Natural History and the University of Florida.
