We have a trio of speakers in June! CJ Solberg,class of 2005, Larry Brennan, class of 2012, and Ivy Doak, class of 2013, will speak on Birdbanding at LLELA.
The presentation will include the following: Birdbanding is an important tool that researchers employ to further the understanding of bird populations and behavior, including dispersal and migration, social structure, life-span, survival rate, and reproductive success. Banding is also an instrument used to provide direct feedback on various results of habitat management. Analysis of banding data can play major role in monitoring the status of species of concern and threatened or endangered species. EFCTMN banders participate in several different projects at LLELA.
