They are coming our way so let’s get ready! It’s been a whole year since our friends from the south passed through the Delaware Valley on their way to breeding grounds to the north. In this refresher session, Ian Gardner will remind us how to make the most of the migration with tips on locating migrating birds by sight and sound. Best locations and some important information about timing.
Ian was born, raised in Central PA. It’s also where he went to college and graduate school, and where he currently lives and works. He earned his B.S. degree in Wildlife Conservation at Juniata College, and his M.S. degree in Forest Resources at Penn State University. He’s spent the last 3 years working as a Wildlife Technician at Fort Indiantown Gap, where he specialize in birds, plants, and moths. Two years ago he helped found the Partners in Neotropical Bird Conservation (PiNBC), a volunteer group of conservationists interested in studying and conserving neotropical migrants and their habitats by working with local communities and conducting rapid assessments in at-risk natural areas. The latest project for PiNBC was the CACAO Expedition.
