Join us to learn about the habitat changes that have occurred over 50+ years in our Palomarin study area with scientists who have been tracking and analyzing the trends, and see how the bird community is responding. We invite you to check out our web-based, interactive Data Explorer at pointblue.org/palodataexplorer before and after the episode so you can delve further into this topic.
This episode will feature Point Blue Principal Ecologist Dr. Kristen Dybala as your host, Avian Ecologist Hilary Allen as your MC, and guest scientists Dr. Elizabeth Porzig (Point Blue Working Lands Director) and Ryan DiGaudio (Point Blue California Partners in Flight Coordinator, Ecologist, and Top Bird Biologist).
We hope you’ll enjoy this new way to visit Palomarin and will come away with a better sense of the important science stories that are emerging from Palo and how it all connects to some of the biggest conservation challenges around the world.
About the Palomarin Field Station
One of the world’s premier facilities for training field biologists in avian ecology, our Palomarin Field Station, located in Point Reyes National Seashore, has welcomed more than 700 interns from 23 countries since 1966. Palomarin data—including information on songbirds, habitat, weather, and the impact of environmental change—have been the basis for 100+ peer-reviewed scientific papers. Today this includes the longest running mist-netting and landbird-banding monitoring effort West of the Mississippi and third in the continent, and a songbird nest-monitoring and territory-mapping program that spans four decades.
About the Palomarin Data Explorer
From detecting signals of climate change to uncovering migratory pathways to illuminating local change, the data from the Palomarin Field Station tell countless stories that contribute to conserving our planet. Through our Data Explorer, we welcome you to discover the stories that come out of our data.
