Join us Thursday, January 7, at 7 p.m. for a fascinating Zoom presentation on Connecticut's Ovenbirds, with Eliza Grames.
Eliza is a Ph.D. candidate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UConn. She is working with a team of researchers on a project that might help keep the population of this iconic bird from declining.
She's recording their songs and trying to determine why some males sing later into the summer than others. She's also studying why small forest fragments are less densely populated with songbirds than larger fragments. What she's discovered through modeling and song analysis may have important implications for the conservation of Ovenbirds.
