How bird migration is forcasted using technology and data modeling.
Some 80% of North American migratory birds travel under the cover of darkness, adding to the mystique of migration season. In recent years, the advent of BirdCast has made it possible to forecast when and where birds are flying en masse—making birdwatching more fun and offering chances to take quick action and save birds’ lives. Join Dr. Andrew Farnsworth to learn how BirdCast merges weather radar and data modeling to assist birders, scientists, and conservation efforts around the country.
