Calgary Talk: Getting the Whole Picture – What We’ve Learned By Studying Nighthawks Year Round

Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Doors 6:30 PM | Talk 7PM
AWA Cottage School
455 12 Street NW

Elly will share what we’ve learned about where Common Nighthawks spend their time outside of the breeding season and how it applies to the conservation of this poorly understood species. She will cover the conservation importance of studying birds during migration and on the wintering grounds, and how it applies to our Common Nighthawks in Alberta.

Elly is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Alberta studying under the supervision of Dr. Erin Bayne and Dr. Mark Brigham. Elly is an applied ornithologist and has worked with a variety of species of conservation concern, including during her B.Sc. at the University of Victoria and her M.Sc. at Simon Fraser University. Elly has been working with nightjars, and especially Common Nighthawks, for the past 8 years as Program Manager for the WildResearch Nightjar Survey and for the past 4 years as a Ph.D. Student at the University of Alberta

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see.
