Thursday, May 6, 2021, 6:45 PM. Due to COVID-19, our monthly meetings this fall (September through December) will be virtual meetings via Zoom. Our May meeting will be a presentation by Andrew Hutson of Audubon NC entitled, "Protecting Birds and the Places They Need."
Chapel Hill Bird Club Meeting (by Zoom). May 24, 2021 John A. Gerwin, NC Museum of Natural Sciences. 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, meeting will begin at 7:30.
