Program: Effects of Invasive Shrubs on Common Yellowthroat Breeding Successs
Wednesday, January 13
UNH Cooperative Extension Wildlife Specialist Matt Tarr will present the results of his PhD research investigating how a reduction in caterpillar abundance associated with the presence of invasive shrubs influences the productivity and behavior of Common Yellowthroats. He will also provide an overview of ongoing research investigating habitat use, site fidelity, and juvenile dispersal of shrubland dependent birds in southeastern NH.
Program: Bird Banding
Wednesday, May 11
Bird banding has been recognized for many years as an important research tool for ornithologists. Migration patterns, longevity, behavior, diseases, food preferences, population studies, and geographic distribution are just a few of the areas being investigated through banding. Join Jay Barry and Lauren Kras as they introduce you to the methods of banding and a look at current research programs being conducted in NH.
Program: World End Pond Teaser
Wednesday, June 8
In the southeast corner of NH along the MA border lies a shallow, 100 acre pond known as World End Pond. Since 2012, over 170 species of birds have been recorded at this Salem site and it has proven to be one of the top ranking birding locations in southern NH. Come learn about this hidden gem from Salem resident and presenter Kyle Wilmarth.
