Over two decades of studying and banding 15,000+ Prothonotary Warblers, Illinois Natural History Survey’s Jeff Hoover and his team have made some remarkable discoveries. He will share some of their findings – from surprising behaviors like birds moving away from “bad” sites and returning from their wintering grounds to breed close to where they were born, to life expectancy, lifetime reproductive success, and response to global climate change – and how they relate to the broader bird world.
