Chickaloon Flats is a tidal mudflat on Turnagain Arm, and a valuable area for migrating and breeding birds. Sadie will discuss results from her master’s research on shorebirds utilizing Chickaloon as a spring and fall migration stopover. A main objective of her research was to utilize stable isotopes from feathers to determine breeding and/or wintering origins of six shorebird species migrating through south-central Alaska. These and other findings from the mudflats will be discussed.
