Description: Instructor: Lucy Zipf, PhD

Breeding habitat is in decline for many bird species in North America as a result of climate and land use changes. Conservation areas tasked with protecting threatened bird populations often actively manage landscapes and erect artificial nesting structures to mitigate breeding habitat loss. However, by interfering in nesting habitat, humans have the potential to draw birds to unsuitable habitats. During this talk Lucy will dive into the history and impacts of conservation management and artificial nest boxes (think bigger bird houses) on breeding success in cavity nesting birds. Using this analysis, we can identify management practices that promote reproduction and survival in vulnerable bird populations that call our local community home.
