The Race Is On and Here They Come!

2011/04/10

April 19, 7 p.m., 218 Pearson Hall, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio

When a wave of warblers descends on Oxford, that must mean that spring is here. They are the vanguard of more than 200 Neotropical migrant species that will flood into North America. As they began to fill the forests and fields with the melodious songs of spring, your eyes may not deceive you but your ears are another question. It isn’t easy! Join Dave Russell, Department of Zoology, Miami U., for an evening of fun in this refresher course designed to hone your identification skills. Russell, a certified bird bander and banding trainer, teaches ornithology.

Through the Avian Research and Education Institute, whose mission is “to protect and conserve avian populations through research, education, and advocacy,” many in the area have learned about birds and the thrill of bird banding. Audubon Miami Valley sponsors and supports the Avian Research and Education Institute. This talk is at 7 p.m. in Pearson Hall on the Oxford campus of Miami University in Room 218.
