Pamela D. Hunt, PhD, Avian Conservation Biologist, NH Audubon
Why do birds migrate? How do they know where they’re going? How does weather affect migration paths? The phenomenon of bird migration has fascinated people for millennia, and in this program the answers are finally revealed! Pam Hunt of NH Audubon will provide an overview of the nuts and bolts of bird migration, including how scientists study it and what role weather and climate play. We’ll also discuss examples of migration routes of some familiar (and unfamiliar) species and touch on the conservation issues facing migratory birds.
