Still thinking about migrants, our October meeting will be focusing in on a rare migrant in our area, but one of great concern - the Kirtland's Warbler. Join Nathan Cooper, Research Ecologist at the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, as he talks about the natural and conservation history of the Kirtland's Warbler. He will also share some of his latest research on the species. Topics will include everything from tracking Kirtland's Warblers across their full annual cycle, to reducing the conservation reliance of Kirtland's Warblers through adaptive management of the cowbird control program. Along the way he'll share lots of great photos and videos of this amazing success story.
Come join the flock via Zoom or Facebook on Thursday, October 1st. The Zoom meeting will start at 6:45 PM with a virtual social time. For those watching on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MeckBirds/) the program will begin at 7 PM. We look forward to gathering the flock once again for another amazing program, even if it is only in cyberspace.
