RADAR ANALYSIS OF NE U.S. FALL BIRD MIGRATION STOPOVER SITES
October 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
DEANNA DAWSON, Wildlife Biologist, USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center
Deanna will describe research conducted with University of Delaware collaborators that uses data collected by weather surveillance radars in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Region 5 (the 13 states from Virginia north to Maine) to map landbird use of stopover sites during the fall migration. Learn about this research which supports the idea that preserving existing patches of natural habitats, particularly forests, in developed landscapes and in coastal areas should be a conservation priority to address the stopover requirements of migrant landbirds. Light refreshments and mingling start at 7 p.m. Public invited. Inquiries to Lynne Wheeler, firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-751-8097 (prefer text).
