Unraveling a Migration Mystery: 2020’s mass die-off of migratory birds in Colorado

January 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am MST

Free

Many birds travel thousands of miles as part of their annual migration. They face many dangers and challenges during their travels, and some do not make it to their destination. This past fall, however, there was a dramatic die-off of migrating birds across the American Southwest.

Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop of Fort Collins proudly sponsors this special virtual presentation via Zoom with Arvind Panjabi, Avian Conservation Scientist and co-author of 2019’s 3 Billion Birds Lost paper in the journal Science, as he shares the latest news about the causes of this catastrophe, what it means, and what we can all do to help birds in our daily lives.

Registration is required. You will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link to be used the day of the webinar. A link to the recording of the webinar will be available post-event.
