Lecture on Songbird Migration

APALACHICOLA - Join us on Wednesday, April 15, 2:00-3:00pm, Alan Kneidel will lecture on "The Influence of Coastal Weather Patterns on the Use of a Florida Barrier Island by Trans-Gulf Migrants.” For the past two springs, a team of NOAA Environmental Cooperative Science Center (ECSC) researchers from Delaware State University have been studying the migrant songbird community on St. George Island. One of the goals of this study has been to determine whether local weather patterns are associated with the magnitude, temporal variability, and physical condition of migrants using the island as a migratory stopover site. This presentation will focus on the results of this study, while providing context for determining the ecological importance of this vulnerable coastal habitat to the annual cycle of migratory songbirds.
