Nocturnal Migration: The birds flying over your bed while you sleep
May 4 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Migration is one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world, and yet much of the migration of North America’s birds takes place under a cloak of darkness. This talk by Larry Clarfeld will illuminate nocturnal migration, delving into the historical context of the “night flight”, current techniques for studying this phenomenon, and how these technologies are being used to promote conservation.
