In this program, the Cornell Lab’s BirdCast team will demonstrate a new tool for tracking nocturnal bird migration anywhere in the continental United States. The Migration Dashboard provides near real-time information on the fascinating flights of migratory birds across the United States each spring and fall based on data collected by a network of weather surveillance radar stations.
Using historical and seasonal context, the Dashboard helps birdwatchers and conservationists understand the bigger picture of migration and anticipate when migration intensity will be high. The Dashboard will be an invaluable tool for learning about migration, planning your next birding trip, and supporting conservation actions that aim to provide safe airspace for the billions of birds crossing the U.S. each year.
This program will begin at 1 pm and will be held via Zoom. For more information or to register, click here.
