“Bird Migration” by Biologist Dr. Alan Clark
Wednesday, December 11
Refreshments served at 7pm, lecture begins at 7:30pm
Katonah Village Library
26 Bedford Road, Katonah
Most birds migrate at night (a few notable exceptions include many raptors, waterfowl, and shorebirds). Human night vision is poor, and, consequently, little is known about how birds navigate during migration. Dr. Clark of Fordham University will describe how he and his colleagues are using radar and acoustic recordings to explore the mysteries of bird migration and to better understand how birds navigate through our increasingly urbanized landscapes.
Dr. Clark is a Professor of Conservation Biology at Fordham University and holds a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Washington, an M.S. in Natural Resource Policy from the University of Michigan, a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, as well as B.M.E. in Music Education and a B.A. in Religious Studies. He is a member of Bedford Audubon’s Board of Directors, chairs the Science & Research Committee, and has chaired or served as advisor to several other committees and programs.
