VCE (Vermont Center For Ecostudies) Biologist Chris Rimmer has been studying Bicknell’s Thrush and other birds in the Dominican Republic for over 16 years. National Geographic joined Chris on one of his long-term study plots in the Baoruco Mountains near the border with Haiti. Chris’ monitoring data are some of the longest term data for rare, endemic birds that live in these cloud forests.
