Birds of the Arboretum – Spring Migration and Citizen Science
May 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm$10.00
Presented by Chuck Henrikson
In the depths of winter we look forward to spring and the return of birds to the Arboretum. There are not many resident bird species in the Arboretum in the winter months, but during spring migration the number of bird species jumps dramatically. Some of the new arrivals stay all summer while others pass through heading north to find appropriate habitats for both food and reproductive success. Who are these migrants, where did they live in the winter and what is their final destination? Chuck will explore a variety of examples. He will also describe some of his experiences with eBird, a website that allows citizen scientists around the world to identify and count the birds they see and hear, and contribute their information to a single database.
Registration closes on May 8th.
Chuck is a Volunteer Steward in the Arboretum, serves on the Arboretum Board of Visitors and started year round bird walks in the Arboretum in 2015 that continue to the present.
