Chapter Meeting

May 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us the 3rd Thursday of the month for our chapter meeting!

Meet and greet 9-9:30am   Meeting starts at 9:30am

AT presentation: “Connecting the Dots: Documenting the Full Annual Cycle Movement Patterns of Migrant American Kestrels (Falco sparverius)” by Maddy Kaleta

This presentation elaborates on the kestrel decline and data gaps we aim to fill with the kestrel project.  It includes data from the first year with returned trackers and elaborates on our success and failures with new tracking technology.  We tell the story of the two birds that overwinter in North Texas that we successfully recorded movement data on!

Maddy Kaleta is a second-year master’s student studying biology at UNT. She is currently studying American kestrels in Denton County to examine annual survivorship and movement ecology of migrant kestrels to better understand why kestrels may be declining. Her work in endangered avian species, movement ecology and land use, and observational studies of a variety of bird species in positions across the country provided her with the experience to now work with these incredible falcons! When she’s not out trapping kestrels or checking on banded birds, Maddy regularly goes birding with her dog on local trails, explores caves, and enjoys traveling, to see more birds of course!
