Dark ecology: Studying night-time bird migration with weather radar

Monday, June 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Combining data from weather radar stations with the observations of citizen scientists has opened a new window on the twice-yearly phenomenon of bird migration. Researchers at the Cornell Lab are at the forefront of this burgeoning new field. Three distinguished Edward W. Rose Postdoctoral Fellows will reveal how they are unlocking the secrets of bird migration and answering such questions as: which nights will migratory birds be travelling in great numbers; what directions will they be headed; and which species are likely to be part of the massive stream passing by overhead?
