    Description

    Shorebird migration strategies vary by species, migration distance and route, time of year, and resources at staging and stopover sites. The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network has been highly successful in the identification, designation, and protection of important migration habitats for many species that stage in traditional areas. Recently, conservation efforts also focus on species and populations that disperse broadly on the landscape and that exhibit opportunistic use of available habitat in highly dynamic wetland systems. This unpredictability makes the conservation of wetland stopover habitats in the interior of North America highly challenging. We present an approach to identifying landscapes and wetlands critical to en route migrants in extensive ephemeral wetland systems.
