Dr Chris Tonra, faculty member at The Ohio State University, received a Columbus Audubon Conservation Grant to study Prothonotary Warblers. These birds nest in the Columbus area, both  downtown near the Scioto-Audubon Metro Park and in larger numbers in the Hoover Nature Preserve near Galena.

Images of Prothonotary Warblers and research sites early in this video were taken at the research site at Mosquito Lake in Trumbull County. Researchers have been studying the warblers in that location for several years. We thank Loyd Marshall for helping us to identify the site of the photos.
