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.
