Cayuga Bird Club Meeting & Presentation
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 @ 12:30 am - 1:30 am
Of Mansions and Shacks: Understanding Divergent Nest Building Behaviors Between Two Populations of Yellow Warblers
Speaker: Vanya Rohwer, PhD., Curator of the Bird and Mammal collection at the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates, Cornell Lab of Ornithology
Yellow Warblers have one of the widest breeding distributions of all North American wood warblers, ranging from the equator to Alaska. Different breeding sites pose different challenges to successfully raising young, and one way for Yellow Warblers to overcome these challenges is by building nests that are well suited to local environments. Rowher will explain why Yellow Warblers breeding in two temperate and subarctic Canada build such dramatically different nests. Bird club business begins at 7:30 p.m. followed by the presentation. All are welcome.
