Next Meeting: Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 7:00PM at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library
Birds of Israel
Evan Dalton will report on "Studying Bird Migration in Israel."
Scientists at Manomet Bird Observatory in Plymouth, MA have been monitoring the birds that use the East Coast migratory flyway for over 50 years. The data collected have painted a vibrant picture of the health of North American bird populations and how they respond to the challenges posed by habitat loss and climate change.
In the fall of 2017, staff from Manomet visited the Jerusalem Bird Observatory in Israel in the first step towards a friendship agreement with a fellow scientific organization. During this trip they experienced the sheer magnitude of fall migration through the Middle East. Just like at Manomet, scientists at JBO have been collecting data on migrating birds for nearly 25 years. Since the exchange, Manomet has been working with JBO to analyze these data and to work collaboratively in future ecological and educational endeavors.
Meeting Place: Park & Ride, North Street, Mattapoisett unless otherwise noted. All welcome.Trips generally last two to three hours.
