Methow Conservancy First Tuesday Program
Tracking Purple Martins – to South America and Back
Tuesday, May 1st, 7:00-8:30pm
at the Winthrop Barn, free
Wildlife biologist Julie Hovis will share information from a ground-breaking study she helped run in South Carolina on Purple Martin migration using geolocator tracking devices. Julie managed and monitored a purple martin colony in South Carolina that successfully fledged over 900 nestlings during a 12-year period. Learn about the Purple Martin’s life and migration cycle, nesting biology and pre-migratory roosts. Julie will also talk briefly about the status of the Purple Martin in Washington.
The doors open at 6:30pm. The event is free and open to everyone. For more information, contact 996-2870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
