Conserving Migrating Birds from Central Illinois to the Tropics @ Heller Nature Center

From American Golden-Plovers that migrate through central Illinois to thrushes and vireos that cross the Gulf of Mexico, migrating birds need a lot of TLC to get to their breeding grounds in North America. Illinois Natural History Survey’s Mike Ward, an ornithologist who also teaches at University of Illinois, will discuss his group’s studies of stopover ecology and efforts to promote safe passage for migrating birds.
