Young, Gifted and Wild About Birds wraps up for 2023 with a fascinating inside look at the important tools for bird research being developed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Kathi Borgmann, Ph.D., the communications manager for the Cornell Lab, will talk about “From Sound Recording to eBird Status and Trends Maps: How Citizen Science Informs Bird Conservation.”

It’s scheduled for Thursday, April 13, 7 p.m.

Kathi’s presentation will focus on tools including eBird and the Merlin Bird ID app.

They’re important to researchers and of great use to birders. She will explore the new eBird Trends maps that show exactly where bird populations are changing.

She’ll also talk about how bird songs and calls are recorded in the field, and why it’s important.

All proceeds will go directly toward maintaining and improving bird habitat at Connecticut Audubon’s sanctuaries, including our newest sanctuary at Stratford Point.

Native plantings. New shrub habitat for nesting birds. Invasive plant removal. Trail maintenance. Meadow management and more.

Your generosity will make a real difference. Thank you!
