The Nighttime Marathon of Birds
Public Welcome Family Friendly Will be Recorded Free Event Program/Speaker Presentation
Learn about night migrating birds and how you can help them.
Please join us for "The Nighttime Marathon of Birds" with Edward Warden, urban naturalist and President of Chicago Ornithological Society.
Daytime is easily when we notice birds the most. From the dawn chorus to spectacular colors that shine in the sunlight, it's easy to associate birds with the daylight hours. But during migration season, nighttime is one of the most critical periods of the day when it comes to survival. Join us for a program where we explore the phenomenon of nighttime migration, what we know about it, why it matters, and how we can help conserve birds even while we sleep.
