Tom Driscoll will be leading a New Hope Audubon Society bird walk scheduled for 8 participants for Wednesday, May 12 at 7:30am in Chatham County. Participants will be notified of the specific location the day before the walk. The walk will be about 3 hours on mostly level land. Participants must wear masks and adhere to the social distancing norms. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and long pants. Bring water and snacks if you desire.
Join us on Zoom as John A. Gerwin, curator and educator at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, presents "To Trap, Tag, and Track a Bird".
John James Audubon tagged a phoebe in 1803, and thus heralded a concept that has blossomed into a multi-faceted world of technological wizardry. Avian biologists continue to use the simple method of affixing a numbered aluminum band to a bird, but they also employ a variety of other techniques such as satellite transmitters or carbon isotope analyses. Our speaker will discuss a handful of techniques now used and showcase results from studies conducted on a variety of bird species, such as Black-capped Petrel, Turkey Vulture, Hermit Thrush, and more. These results highlight different types of bird movements and John will discuss the ways in which such data are collected, analyzed, and used for bird conservation and habitat management. Zoom lines will open at 7:15 and the meeting will commence at 7:30.
