Vermont biologist to lead migratory bird group
John Buck is Vermont's migratory bird project leader. Buck will chair the Atlantic Flyway Nongame Bird Technical Section for the Atlantic Flyway Council.
The Atlantic Flyway Council's membership includes wildlife managers from 17 Atlantic Coast state fish and wildlife agencies along with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Puerto Rico, Quebec, Ontario, and the Maritime Provinces.
The group provides scientific advice to the council on issues pertaining to migratory bird conservation.
Buck says conserving migratory birds requires multistate and multinational efforts.
Buck has worked for Vermont Fish & Wildlife since 1980.
