Of Islands and Undergrads: A decade of bird study in the Isles of Shoals

Tuesday, February 7, 2017 @ 12:30 am - 2:00 am

Speaker: Dr. David Bonter, Director, Citizen Science, Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Description: The Isles of Shoals, a craggy archipelago in the Gulf of Maine, is an ideal place to immerse students in learning and research focused on birds. For the past decade, Dr. David Bonter has taught Field Ornithology and mentored the research of Cornell undergraduate students studying the eiders, swallows, gulls, and warblers that invade the islands during the breeding season. This presentation will virtually transport you to Appledore Island where you’ll learn about the students’ findings and experience their journey through the trials and tribulations of ornithological field work. Free.
