Good Afternoon, Our next Monday Night Seminar will be given by David Bird from McGill University. He will explain how he uses drones for conducting population surveys, tracking radio-tagged birds, observing birds in inaccessible or dangerous places, mapping and monitoring bird habitats and deterring nuisance species. Come out and hear what he has to say and mingle with your local ornithology community.
Help us spread the word! Sarah Monday Night Seminar Can Drones Help Our Bird Populations? October 28, 7:30 PM Cornell Lab of Ornithology, auditorium, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca, NY David Bird, Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Biology, McGill University Small unmanned vehicle systems (UVS), sometimes referred to as “drones” and formerly exclusive to militaries, are rapidly advancing in sophistication and availability to civilians. Ranging from hand-launched autonomous airplanes to terrestrial robots to underwater machines, they are increasingly being employed in such areas as agriculture, emergency services, meteorology, and oceanography. Small UVS are now being used in the field of bird research and management, for example, conducting population surveys, tracking radio-tagged birds, sensing and observing birds in inaccessible or dangerous places, mapping and monitoring bird habitats, and deterring nuisance bird species. Join Dr. David M. Bird as he explores these applications of UVS for research, management, and conservation in the world of birds. Join us in person in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's auditorium, or watch online with the live-streaming video below. https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/live-events/ -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
