Subject: [birders] Andy Jones, Ph.d
I just finished viewing a great Zoom talk featuring Dr. Andy Jones via the Kirtland’s Bird Club in Ohio. The talk was recorded and should be available on their website in a few days. Topics included: “Lights Out Cleveland” initiative currently in its third year. Several dozen buildings, including the Rockin’ Roll Hall of Fame have agreed to turn their lights off from midnight to dawn; migration patterns of the Red-headed woodpeckers geotagged in the Toledo area; genomic documentation of new hybrids including Field Sparrow x Clay Colored Sparrow, Cerulean x Northern Parula (Parulean), Magnolia x Redstart and Cerulean x Blue winged warbler (paper from Wilson Ornithological on the latest hybrid information is coming out next month); latest technology employed in studying migration includes radiotelemetry and tracking from the International
Space Station and a taxonomic update included spiltting the Mew Gull, lumping McKay’s Bunting into Snow Bunting and splitting the Band-rumped Storm Petrel into four different species. Whew!
