BPQ December Monthly Meeting and Lecture

Increases, declines, fluctuations, and changes in timing – insights from 15 years of migration monitoring at McGill Bird Observatory

Presented by Marcel Gahbauer, Co-Founder of the McGill Bird Observatory

Monday December 7, 2020

7:00 PM

Via Zoom Video Conference

Over the first 15 years of McGill Bird Observatory’s operation, more than 78,000 birds of 127 species were banded, and an additional 95 species were observed. Already enough years have passed to identify distinct trends in abundance of some species and changes in their timing of migration. The Zoom presentation will spotlight some of the key insights from McGill Bird Observatory’s upcoming 15-year report. Marcel will also preview plans for the future which involve a growing relationship with BPQ.
