Although some bird banding had occurred in the Cabot Head area starting in 1998, in 2002 BPBO adopted its current migration monitoring protocols for the Cabot Head Research Station, in accordance with Canadian Migration Monitoring Network criteria. During the winter of 2006-2007, Dr. Stéphane Menu, Station Scientist at CHRS, wrote the “Five Year Report” which analyzes and summarized the migration monitoring data obtained at CHRS from 2002 to 2006.
