Tin Mountain Nature Program: July EcoForum
Thursday, July 11
Aerial Insectivores: The Who, What, Where, and Why of an Emerging Conservation Issue
Thursday, July 11, 12-1pm
Field Program 1:30-4pm
Nature Learning Center, Albany
Aerial insectivores are birds that feed primarily on insects captured in flight, and include nightjars, swifts, flycatchers, and swallows. Many of these species, particularly swallows and the Chimney Swift, are experiencing significant population declines both in NH and across the Northeast, and sometimes across their entire ranges. Dr. Pamela Hunt, NH Audubon, will provide an overview of these species’ biology and population trends, and delve into what we know – or don’t know – about the causes of the declines.
An optional field component will follow the EcoForum presentation.
The EcoForum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway and Frontside Grind Coffee Roasters. EcoForums are free and open to the public and are presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The community is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.
