The Boreal Songbird Initiative (BSI) is “a non-profit organization dedicated to outreach and education about the importance of the Boreal Forest region to North America’s birds.”
The BSI website provides a massive amount of information about how important the Boreal Forest is to our birds. There is a
- comprehensive guide to the 300+ Boreal birds
- information on how the Boreal Forest combats global warming
- a fascinating migration map of some of the Boreal birds
- plus lots more!
BSI also has a blog written by Dr. Jeff Wells, bird conservationist expert and senior scientist for the Boreal Songbird Initiative.
Dr. Wells is also the author of Birder’s Conservation Handbook: 100 North American Birds at Risk, a book no birder should be without.
