BSU, Peregrine Fund Biologists Make National News with Lucky Peak Study

Peregrine Fund biologist, Dr. Chris McClure, in collaboration with Dr. Jesse Barber, Heidi Ware, and other scientists from Boise State and the Intermountain Bird Observatory created a phantom road on Lucky Peak to show that traffic noise drives songbirds away from forests and harms ones that stay behind. Their study has gotten a lot of media attention since its recent publication. National Geographic, The Atlantic, BBC News, Boise State Public Radio, and Northwest Public Radio are just a few news outlets reporting the study.
