Due to a lack of sustainable funding, the Rouge River Bird Observatory will cease operations in October 2018. I will be leaving the University as a retiree with Visiting Scholar status, and hope to finish publishing RRBO-related research. I will continue to maintain the RRBO website, this blog, and social media (Twitter and Facebook) for the time being, and I'll use these venues to post updates on publications and related news, for those interested.
I will still be collecting data on European Goldfinches! Please see this page on how to submit data.
Finally, I sincerely thank everyone who supported RRBO in so many ways the past 26 years.
