Birds and Beer – Bird Migration
April 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Hosted at Nezzy’s Sports Bar and Grill, Cumberland
Presentation by Jim Bryce, Bird Bander
The phenomenon of bird migration has long intrigued mankind. Until recently, all we have learned about its patterns, and the specifics for each individual species, has come from the leg-banding of a large cumulative volume of individual birds over the past century, and the re-encounters with a small fraction of those birds. The new availability of micro-scale tracking technology has given us the ability to track the movement of individual birds of virtually every species, revealing some amazing facts. I look forward to sharing some of this new knowledge on April 18th!
