“The Louisiana Ornithological Society recognizes and honors Donata R. Henry on this 23rd day of April 2016 for her strong contributions to Louisiana nesting bird research and conservation. Donata established the Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survival (MAPS) station in the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area in which she involves local residents and students in banding migrant and resident birds to study bird populations and habitat selection patterns of Swainson’s Warbler within the Pearl River WMA. Because this site on the Pearl River WMA was clear-cut in the 1990’s and Donata’s long-term research on breeding birds here predates Hurricane Katrina, she is studying a number of conservation issues associated with the Swainson’s Warbler and other breeding birds including the impact of intense forest management and storm disturbances on these breeding birds. A Senior Professor of the Practice at Tulane University, Donata not only conducts research, but also encourages students to learn about birds and bird conservation through the classes she teaches. In 2015, Donata was selected as an Honors Professor of the Year at Tulane. Donata’s dedicated work to further our knowledge of Louisiana breeding birds and her efforts to educate the public and her students about our birds certainly reflects her passion for birds.”
