A Lifetime of Bay State Birding: A History of Change in Massachusetts Birdlife
This presentation will offer a reflection on some of the events that have affected Massachusetts bird populations since the middle of the 20th century. Using specific examples, more than a half century of avian change will be viewed through the lens of anthropogenic influences, habitat disruption, biological factors and most recently, how climate change may influence birds in the future that we see inhabiting the Commonwealth today.
