Presentation at Warner Library - Dr. Elijah Goodwin
Of Birds and Beeches: Wood Thrush Productivity and Management At Rockefeller State Park Preserve

Presented by Dr. Goodwin is owner/photographer/researcher/educator for Whimbrel Nature

Monday April 25 at 7 pm

Even if we can’t identify it by name, many of us are familiar with the haunting flute-like song of the wood thrush. Rockefeller State Park Preserve has been designated an Important Bird Area.  Dr. Elijah Goodwin will present preliminary results from the first year of a multi-year study of wood thrush productivity on Preserve lands. What can wood thrushes tell us about the health of our forest, and where do we go from here?

Dr. Goodwin’s background and mission - Elijah Goodwin PhD in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, seeks to capture the beauty of nature and science in a way that also communicates the complex and fascinating stories behind that beauty. His scientific experience ranges from banding hawks and owls during migration in New Jersey, to surveying beaver activity and bird populations in the Adirondacks, to studying bird song learning all over the Eastern Seaboard and Mexico. His images have been used by organizations including the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Geographic News, among others.
