This group is for sharing information about the Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mustelina) and member activities (research, monitoring, conservation action, etc.). The objective of this group is to halt the population decline of the Wood Thrush by 2040 by inspiring, supporting and coordinating conservation efforts throughout the range and life cycle of the Wood Thrush.
We are interested in collaboratively working on monitoring, population modeling, developing habitat & population objectives across Joint Ventures, annual cycle modeling, and discussing the potential need for and potential information gaps to developing Best Management Practices (BMP) for Wood Thrush on the breeding and wintering grounds.
IWOTHCA Steering Committee
The IWOTHCA Steering Committee has monthly calls on the 1st Tues of each Month. Major topics: funding proposals, and better communications/engagement with the broader group
No future meetings have been set. There has been some discussion about an early 2016 meeting at Cornell, and/or piggybacking on another meeting in 2016. We would like to have a Wintering Grounds Workshop at some point and are pursuing funding.

WOTH Conservation Planning Meeting I
Mar 31-Apr 1, 2014
In SC we don't have any current WOTH efforts, but are interested in starting WOTH projects. I'm particularly interested in regional efforts which include geolocator deployment or habitat BMP's. However, I would also be interested in other project ideas.
